The Dears, Defenders of the Universe
With a nondescript name like The Dears, it's fairly easy to float under the radar. Not that this Montreal band has ("They are determined to console underdogs and befriend the alienated" -New York Times, "When the band shines, it reaches stunning heights." -Spin). Currently on tour with the fantastically complimentary Annuals, the Dears are just pushing their way further into the psyche of the intelligent indie-rock listener. It'd be depressing if it weren't so awesome, honestly.
