Boston based dude who (possibly) shares the name Emil Hirsch with the famous actor and likes to fuck with blogs about it.  He's one of about six thousand dudes who go to Emerson and are making electro records but for some reason this one hits it right on the money.  It's like a less pretentious MGMT (leave it to Boston to toe the line).  I just get a special warm feeling when a Boston band does something truer AND doper than their far more hyped cousins from Brooklyn.  His EP called Downed Economy is out on Sweet Touch, and it's available at this location
The title track "Downed Economy" and "short order cooks" are my favorite but I've got some high hopes for a long player sometime this year.
