Strange when an indie record store in Salt Lake City lists among its most popular releases a relatively unknown band from San Francisco. But in the Jan. 22 issue of Rolling Stone's "local favorites" column, the Bay Area's own Uzi & Ari's Headworms was listed among Neil Young, Fleet Foxes, and Bon Iver for the top selling records at a place called Slowtrain Records. Listening to tunes like "Missouri" "Missoula" and "Wolf Eggs," it's easy to hear the group's appeal. Their music is a convergence of twee indie and electronica, with bits of the the Notwist, Radiohead, and Neutral Milk Hotel in their music. Check out these tracks and more at Uzi & Ari's MySpace page here.
