Underground Alert - A FAULTY CHROMOSOME

A Faulty Chromosome hail from Austin, Texas [correction: Burbank, CA, though they seem hellbent on relocating to Austin] and make adorable, romantic indie pop. Their new album is called As An Ex-Anorexic's Six Sicks Exit, ....

Check out their bio, new video, full album stream and a couple of mp3's below:

"a faulty chromosome is a slopbucket of shoegaze tremolo, hand-claps, 8-bit blips, water-damaged mister rogers records, mashed casio chords and drum machine’d beats--all bundled up in a warmish childhood memory of hiding beneath the kitchen table in 1986 with their uncle’s overweight cocker spaniel (what was her name? keebo? keeno?). for neophobes and/or the musically nescient, a faulty chromosome (sort of) sounds like: the feelies + new order + half japanese + pavement + my bloody valentine + shaggs + yo la tengo + pere ubu + sebadoh + belle & sebastian + suicide. sort of. they are the quiet kid who hides in the library at lunch time drawing pictures in textbook margins. at worst, enjoyable noise. at best, a charming mess (i guess?)."
