What's the blues, when you've got Greys?

Quite eager to hear this new record from Toronto-based band Greys, who are filling in where Les Savy Fav seem to have left off; they're getting comparisons to '80s/'90s groups like Fugazi and Nirvana, and the influence is there but certainly not stolen. Greys play confidently and merge grunge with the angular guitar style that seemed to dominate the indie rock world about ten years ago, but they're not the least bit inaccessible or intimidating. Hear, here:
