Best indie rock supergroup

Vet local players Vinnie Cosentino (Palantine, Mother Winslow), Alastair St. Hill (Gentlemen Please), Andy Stern (Feral Babies) and John Smith (newer to the scene but with chops all his own) have been performing together as Early Forms for the past year. They recorded and self-released a strong debut full-length, Better Broken Houses, in January, its indie rock imbued with catchy synth-whirring melodies and fizzy drive à la Weezer but with more Surfer Blood-style beach-haziness and echo-chamber vocal harmonies. And the quartet has only gotten tighter and more dynamic with each live showing. facebook.com/earlyforms, earlyforms.bandcamp.com.
