THE CARROTS - Doing Our Part (Limited edition 7" vinyl + free MP3 download)
01. Doing our part
02. Jimmy don't cry
03. Secret since '99
04. Ladies of givens
The Austin scene has always been known as one of the sources of interesting indie rock groups such as SHEARWATER, OKKERVIL RIVER, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY and THE EARLY TAPES. THE CARROTS came out precisely with the intention of breaking the uniformity of this scene by offering a fun project that modernises the legacy of 60s girl groups like THE MARVELETTES, THE COOKIES and THE SUPREMES.
After their first performance at SXSW they reached Elefant Records and the fantastic single 'Doing Our Part' was released! Songs that remind us of MARTHA REEVES to LINDA SCOTT and SKEETER DAVIS, to THE CRYSTALS, THE COOKIES with a modern style placing them alongside THE PIPETTES and CAMERA OBSCURA.
