Cold War Kids — Hospital Beds

I was initially subconsciously biased against the Cold War Kids, without ever having heard their music, because of their name (any band with the word ‘kids” in their name automatically sounds too hipster-y too me) and because of their blog hype (the worst combination of the two factors to me would be a band something like like “Vampire Weekend Kids.”).  However, their music  is quite pleasant–mellow, pretty, almost something like Andrew Bird mixed with the Violent Femmes or something.

Not that I’m a huge fan or anything but I think it’s interesting that I initially was biased against them just based on their name and blog hype.
