SAIL AWAY WITH TREASURE FLEET
Free and easy indeed. Total Fest welcomes Recess Records' Treasure Fleet to the lineup this year. The Chicago outfit consists of dudes from a band or two that you might have checked out before, with a lineup of Isaac and Dave from the Arrivals (who you might remember closing out Total Fest X in 2011), Mike from Sass Dragons, Eli from Smoking Popes and Neil from Smoking Popes and Lawrence Arms.
Not that Treasure Fleet necessarily sounds a whole lot like any of those bands—rather, it goes for a 60s psychedelic-meets-Britpop kinda vibe, plus lyrics about riding bikes while high and spacepunks. Perfect for hot summer grooving.
Stream Treasure Fleet on Bandcamp. Right arm, man! Farm out. (KW)
