Swing South: Dear and the Headlights

Dear and the Headlights: "Talk About"
Dear and the Headlights: "I'm Not Crying, You're Not Crying"

The biggest overlooked trend of the past three or so years--how many bands with the word "Dear" in their name. The Dears. The Dear Hunter. Loney Dear. (Let me know if I'm missing one...). And the one for today, Dear and The Headlights.

Coming out of AZ, this band may be slightly overlooked because of its Equal Vision affiliation--a label that usually has a roster of more screamo than modern rock. But that's no reason to ignore Dear and The Headlights, it has a fan friendliness on par with The Hold Steady or The Killers.

Last year's release, Drunk Like Bible Times, rollicks, rolls and is overall a good release.
