Sixties Cult

Cults is an up-and-coming NYC indie band that seems to be beloved of hipsters, who will embrace anything up until it becomes popular then drop it as "over". They seem to approach things from an updated 60's pop perspective. This one is "You Know What I Mean" off of their first (self-titled) album, which is available only via iTunes.

  1. Didn't move me.

    There might be another aspect to the becoming popular dynamic.

    Consider, frex, Bonnie Raitt. Her music became a LOT less interesting when she became popular.

    It's not all about dropping.
