The Bandicoots (Hamilton, Ont.):  

The Hamilton Bandicoots let us know they've just released their second EP, This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things. We're glad they did, because we think it is a nice thing. We liked their alt-pop that sounds like it's been run through the Wayback Machine with the dial set to the late 50s/early 60s.

The Bandicoots-- Nicolai Kozel (lead guitar), Andrew Parkinson (drums), Lorant Polya (bass) and Justin Ross (vocals/rhythm guitar) tell us that "Props go to Michael Keire (Dirty Nil, Wildlife, Dark Mean) for his mixing skills as well as Brian Lucey (The Pack AD, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Dr. Dog) for his mastering."
