Karate Coyote

Columbus, Ohio

Karate Coyote clearly doesn’t have any interest in being painted in any particular genre corner, and to that end, the Columbus sextet can combine boisterous Indie Pop simplicity with precise Math Rock complexity and Soul Pop effervescence. Karate Coyote’s brilliance lies in the fact that they’re never simply one of these sounds but a multi-hued amalgamation of all of them. And you can dance to it, Dick. Give ’em a 95.

You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Los Campesinos! and the B-52s shimmy on the tables at Danceteria. (Brian Baker)
