Killer tofu be damned. Odds are that over the next few years, when the world hears “The Beets”, they’ll think of these fuzzed out pop kids from Brooklyn, and not the bunch of blue-faced Beatles rip-offs from Doug.
The below video, for “Walk on Your Toes”, may just feature Juan Wauters, a third of the band, but it perfectly captures the Beets’ sound. It’s so low-fi you have to dig it up to hear it, but give it half a chance and you’ll have it stuck in your head the rest of the day/week/month. Still, guys, you might up the production values just a smidge. You’ll still have cred, and we might actually be able to hear what you’re doing.
