Research Turtles: Mankiller Part 1 of 2

Posted on the 15 April 2011 by Hctf @hctf

Research Turtles

The Research Turtles, a poppy rock quartet from Lake Charles, LA, took their name form the Wes Anderson movie The Life Aquatic. They released a self-titled full-length in 2009, but within a year they had to find another singer/guitarist. The replacement is actually a blessing in disguise. bringing a more powerful pair of vocal chords to the table, a definite plus when you play music that is mix of West Coast melodies, Southern Rock and a healthy dose of Britpop.

Mankiller Part 1 of 2 is the first recorded output buy the new line-up. With the exception of the ratter weak opener Girl Like You, which contains some ill advised border-line auto-tune treated vocals, the band throws down catchy hooks and hard-hitting drums that add a sense of urgency to the lyrics about the never ending "Boy meets girl, now what" dilemma.

Research Turtles:
Jud Norman: bass, vocals
Joseph Darbonne: guitar, vocals
Logan Fontenot: guitar, vocals
Blake Thibodeaux: drums
