The Strypes: Snapshot

Time for another awesome Irish band alert! The Strypes are four teenage lads from Cavan, Ireland. Their debut album, Snapshot, has a bluesy garage rock sound somewhere between early Beatles and Stones and all those early 2000s “The” bands – The Strokes, The Vines, The Libertines, etc. In other words, I love it! Fave tracks: “Mystery Man, “Blue Collar Jane,” “Angel Eyes” and their cover of the Willie Dixon/Bo Diddley song “You Can’t Judge a Book By Its Cover.”
