Cymbals Eat Guitars
On their first album, this Staten Island quartet sounded hungry enough to lead a second wave of post-punk revival, but n their recent follow-up, things have smoothed out quite a bit.

In any case, their indie pop phase isn't without its charms, but expect things to rev up considerably when they revisit their debut.
