The Embryos are from the Chicago area but a quick listen to their tunes and you would think you were hearing Scottish legends Teenage Fanclub. The band has just dropped a new EP on Bandcamp and it's excellent.
"Wasting All Your Time" sounds just like the Fannies, while "Playin' Hooky" reveals debts owed to Alex Chilton and Big Star. My favorite song on this EP, though, is the punchy "Half a Wolf", a rocker that echoes Jason Falkner's best material.
More details on The Embryos can be found on the band's official Facebook page.
