Mining the edges of indie, country, and the worst of basic cable, The Longwalls make American pop music. Featuring ex-Gatsby heroes Alan Wuorinen and Brandon Comstock with Dan London and DIY wunderkind Kurt von Stetten on drums, The Longwalls stalk a line between noisy post-pop and twang—exploring ideas and ideals from pop and pulp alike.

The band’s 2008 home-brewed debut, Field Guide for the Zombie Survivalist, features the much-beloved track (and video) Zombies! 2010’s Dark Academy EP was called “a future classic” by the Noise. 2011′s Careers in Science—the band’s pulpy run at sci-fi triumph and failure—was called “a start-to-finish power-pop gem.” Their latest, Kowloon, received the most praise of all. Check it out.

They’ve played all over Boston with the likes of Sodafrog, The Great Bandini, Cassavettes, McAlister Drive, The O’s, Glenn Yoder, The Grownup Noise,  and a whole lot more. They’ve also peformed live on WMFO, WMBR, and WAAF. In 2009 they recorded live for the legendary Band in Boston podcast. That was fun. Here’s a video clip.
