Episode Summary

We Were Promised Jetpacks
2009 was a great year for the latest wave of Scottish bands, particularly for Fat Cat Records labelmates Frightened Rabbit, Twilight Sad, and We Were Promised Jetpacks. had the chance to record with both Twilight Sad and We Were Promised Jetpacks at the 2009 Monolith Music Festival. The interesting thing about We Were Promised Jetpacks is their sound fits very well in between the two aforementioned acts, drawing key strengths from both - as Pitchfork puts it - the tough with the tender. This makes sense since the band lists both Frightened Rabbit and Twilight Sad as influences, but it is rare when a band can pull intelligently without mimicking. WWPJP's debut album, These Four Walls, was released in June of 2009.moreless
