Grouplove at the Newport

By Columbus Alive
From the November 1, 2012 edition

Although the name suggests outré sex experiments, Brooklyn’s Grouplove hugs the mainstream about as closely as an “alternative” band can (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Breakout single “Tongue Tied” is this generation’s answer to The New Radicals (again, not that there’s anything wrong with that) with a dash of Los Campesinos! for good measure.

Joining this exuberant bunch at the Newport this Tuesday will be Papa, a Girls offshoot that also gets quite exuberant, but in the form of slightly more hostile clatter.
