Madrona

Madrona is a New Orleans-based rock outfit composed of Kyle Sharamitaro on drums, Greg Smith on bass, Nathanael Sprague on electric mandolin, and Matt McGarvey on guitar. You might say it is a band prone to musical mood swings - from cartoonish anger, to political melancholy, to the rare fit of straightforward pop happiness. Madrona songs are equally, pleasantly schizo. Some of them are composed of a whole four chords. Others shift wildly between time signatures, harmony, and dissonance while half-spoken, half-sung, hyper-imagistic vocals sit over the top. Thematically, their subjects range from Robert McNamara, George W. Bush, getting drunk, dogs, girls... there is even one song about a guy who tries to get rid of his face and eventually succeeds.
