Meet Connecticut four-piece band The Guru. Member Kyle Mcevoy is also the founder of Seagreen Records (you might recall me posting about them on Valentine's Day), and I first heard The Guru through one of their compilations. Their track "Indian Day" is a fun, upbeat number with bluesy guitar licks that are soon joined by idiosyncratic vocals and syncopated rhythms; refreshingly not buried under layer after layer of fuzz or distortion, this track gives me the vibe that The Guru is a band of close friends doing something they really love. I'm excited to see what else they do this year.
