Download a Hungarian Czech indie band with a very unironic name.

The Sads are a Prague-based group that recently released an album titled Pregnany Scare. I was not a fan of the only other band I'd heard of in the Hungarian Eastern Europe? indie rock circuit. Bands making music on the periphery of said genre's geographical centers run the risk of schmaltz, or the chance of truly outsider marvels. Sometimes they just seem to be on top of their shit. The Sads aren't groundbreaking, but they're surely nice to wake up to.

The Sad, “Phoebe Cates”

The Sad, “Cowboy Shirt”

[Update: God. For the record I've been through both CR and Hungary. Apologies for the mental fart.]
