As much as I get out to shows and network here in Chicago,  it still amazes me that I have not heard of The Laureates yet, but I'm glad I came across their music on FMA.  I think the mix here is done very well as the vocals are on the same level of the guitars.  These songs have some punk influence as well as being rooted on both garage and indie guitar. Chad Preston wrote these songs and then recruited Peter Gray, Adam Penly and Crawfie Ward to complete the band .  Kontrol has a variety of instruments including organ, trombone, trumpet. "Cooler Birds" is my favorite track with it's woozy guitar and reverb vocals.  Thanks to The Laureates and FMA for the FREE download. The band also has a 7" for free download as well.
