André Salvador and the Von Kings: André Salvador and the Von Kings

Craft batch indie rock isn't a genre that will ring a bell for most people, but that's how André Salvador & the Von Kings, a Brooklyn-based project led by multi-instrumentalist Tim Cheplick, is labeled by he band themselves. Their self-titled debut album is filled with carefully assembled psych-pop songs. Orchestrated and bare bones acoustic segments are woven into a mesmerizing sonic tapestry.

Tim Cheplick wears his heart on his sleeve. Mixed emotions are turned a longing love letter (Runaway Schemes) or a put-down farewell of sorts (Pagan Prayers). Prepare for a magic carpet ride, where time and space are not bound by the laws of physics. Recommended if you like The Foreign Films and Ex Norwegian.
