Harlem uses aurally pleasing harmony (think Pixies) unlike many of their contemporaries over their finger-bleeding riffs and punch-you-in-the-nose drums. What I really love about them is their cassette-tape sound and their feel. It’s a hard thing to describe but sometimes you can just tell, even on a recording, that the band was just having an absurd amount of fun while in the studio. I picture a couple of dudes, perhaps armed with mustaches, drinking cheap beer and sleeping in random places. What’s more fun then that?
