Hector's Pets

Hector's Pets and Fletcher C. Johnson take Union Pool back to simpler times on 6/1

There's nothing like some good ol' nostalgia — even if most of us weren't around for the music that largely inspires NYC area bands Fletcher C. Johnson and Hector's Pets (pictured). the former takes cues from rock-pop bands of yesteryear, inundating listeners with prominent, simple guitars and airy vocals to match. Hector's Pets, too, carry a vintage sound, albeit one that is faster and harsher.  Quick guitar riffs, driving drums and hard lead vocals supplanted with cooing back ups will be sure to get feet tapping. See them both at Union Pool tomorrow night (05.21).

Brooklyn's Hector's Pets head to Austin for SXSW

TIme for that old time rock n' roll, just like you used to know. Ok, maybe you've never really heard someone create a track like this before, but for Hector's Pets latest single 'Tearin' Up The Pantry,' the group has taken a cue from classic Woodstock-era band Canned Heat, and given the original country rock track a thorough makeover, remaking the baby boomer anthem as a millenial jam perfect for accompanying that 6-pack you've been hiding in your cooler all winter.

For a band made up entirely of... pets (no seriously, the lead singer goes by Wet Pet, the drummer's name is Teacher's Pet, and .... ok, you get the idea), this band operates by a simple mission: it's one thing to be retro, it's quite another to make it sound new again. For Hector's Pets, this group is right on time. Check out 'Tearin' Up The Pantry' below, and if you are going to be at SXSW, see here for their schedule. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
