Second Stage: Little-Known Bands You Should Hear

Second Stage: Paul And The Patients

Download "Well Done You World" by Paul and the Patients

I've whined a lot over the years about how bad I think pop music was in the '80s, only to find myself liking new bands today that sound an awful lot like groups from 25 years ago — or that at least borrow heavily from that period. Add Paul & The Patients to the list. A quintet from Brooklyn, it doesn't crib entirely from the '80s; in fact, the group's sound is really fresh. But there's an unmistakable '80s ring to the guitars and some of the melodies on the band's new EP, To the Lions. Give a listen to this song and see what you think. It's called "Well Done You World."
