The Beat Buttons

Ex-members of Argentina and Slang come together like Voltron to form Gainesville, FL's Beat Buttons. The bass and drums drive hard to keep you dancing, while the guitar and vocals mimic each other with melodies that will hold you long after the cd is over. The Beat Buttons succeed in the same way a band like Weezer does (or did)--making complex, well-thought out pop songs that sound simple and effortless. I heard someone say that Alex Lopez (vocals/guitar) writes "children's songs for adults," and I think he does. The songs are so natural and memorable, you feel as though you've known them forever. - Lenny
