Getcho Groo Von, the debut effort from the Philadelphia, PA-based garage blues quartet, Thee Idea Men won quite a bit of attention upon its release. The band won the Deli Magazine’s Band of the Month back in November 2012 and Revista Mock named them on their “Top Ten Bands to Listen to”  last March. 

New Level Shoes, which is slated for a May release, will be the follow up to the album that won national attention – and it continues the band’s reputation for a bluesy sound reminiscent of the Black Keys, the Shouting Matches and others as you’ll hear on the “Help Me Mama,” the first single off the band’s forthcoming album – but with a slight country twang here and there, especially during the song’s opening bars.
