Georgia"s title="Tedo Stone and band">Tedo Stone and band traffic in a brand of '70s-esque, swaggering, peach fuzzy guitar rock, drawing influence from T. Rex most notably.
Tedo Stone & Band [L-R]: Clay Houle (guitar), James Lengel (drums), Tedo Stone (vocals, guitar), Frank Keith IV (bass). 

It’s a sound bound to interest Strokes fans, as well as anyone who appreciates melodic rock music. Tedo Stone will be releasing his debut album, Good Go Bad, on July 9th via the always-interesting This Is American Music label. Today we present the premiere the lead single, “Taste”, which Stone tells us all about in his own words…

“Even though it’s the the lead single on my new record, Good Go Bad, ‘Taste’ has actually been around almost five years. It was one of those songs that comes to you like lightning—I wrote the whole thing in less than an hour. When we recorded it in the studio, we recreated my demo almost exactly, which was unusual for this record; it’s the only song that came out exactly as I had envisioned. It’s a go-get-‘em, carpe-diem kinda song, a get-off-your-ass-and-do-something song. It’s about that conflict everyone experiences in their head—‘Do I sit on the couch and relax at home today, or do I get out and do something with my life?’ Both are good for different reasons, but ‘Taste’ is about finding balance between the two. At the end of the day, it’s a fun, catchy little pop song everyone in the band looks forward to playing in our live sets.”—Tedo Stone

"Fire Emblem Heroes desperately and shamelessly wants to monetize our love for these characters, yet it has no idea why we came to love them in the first place.
