Okay Paddy can be fit into a pop corner with, at times, Americana tendencies. They came together thanks to cousins Pat Finnerty and Mike Quinn over a decade ago. many lineup changes followed until Hunk, their 2004 EP, was released. Their first full length, The Cactus Has A Point, came out yesterday.

Meanwhile, labelmates The Swims meander in power pop as well.
Their label Prison Jazz compares their album, Ride of the Blueberry Winter to Guided By Voices Bee Thousand. We think that might be going overboard, but we really like what we've heard so far.
Great melodies, cryptic lyrics...our kind of band baby.
