Vitenam - The Tontons

Legbamel Not-Pop

The Tontons have been around for a while, appearing at SXSW as far back as 2008 when they released their first EP. (Hey, that's four years, now!) But their 5-song release in October, 2011, "Golden", marks a much more polished and--dare I say--pretty sound.

The title track is great but Vietnam is the song to which I keep going back for more. Thus I'm sharing it with you today. You can pick up the whole set for $5 from their BandCamp profile, and it's well worth the investment. They offer enough horns, strings, and lyrical interest to stand out as up-and-coming in the indie world. Take a few minutes to check them out and do let me know what you think.
