Little Brazil is an Omaha band that's fronted by Landon Hedges, a former guitarist for Desaparecidos and The Good Life. Now focused on his own project, Hedges' own pen takes center stage on his group's new album "Son" (released via Kansas City's Anodyne Records). Recalling high-energy acts like Superchunk and Cursive, Little Brazil is tailor made for rip-roarin' live shows. Cowboy Indian Bear is a superb new Lawrence band featuring former Jen Say Kwahs frontman Marty Hillard along with ex-Kennedy Luck Clubbers C.J. Calhoun and Beau Bruns. Picking up where those bands left off, CIB composes deft and brainy indie pop with party-down beats and lots of melodic left turns. Points of reference include Death Cab and Architecture in Helsinki, but these dudes are digging deep into the well to come up with something fresh.
