Cheatahs blew The Babies off stage at the recent Camp Basement gig. Big crunchy guitars and super-sized melodies to match, they swing between sweet despair and narcotic highs. They had a song that was a dead ringer for Creedence's Bad Moon Rising, which would put them right next to Real Estate, but this London band, led by Canadian Nathan Hewitt, have more in common with the direct noisepop appeal of Dignan Porch and Mazes. I wouldn't be surprised if Hewitt had played The Lemonheads' It's A Shame About Ray a few times, either.

Froshed from a split ep last summer (also featuring kindred spirits Dignan Porch) fuckin' rules.
