Philly indie rock group Legs Like Tree Trunks have just released their new EP, Happenstance, featuring two new songs and a re-recording of an older song, “Dick Whitman.” On the title track, the band channels Pavement by creating a loose, guitar-heavy rocker overlayed with singer Matt Holden’s Malkmus inspired-vocals.

The breezy “Goop” places the countryside next to the sea, creating a thick harmonic haze that builds into something much more cathartic. “Dick Whitman” sees the band struggling with identity in ways only a certain Mad Men character could relate to (no spoilers here).

Legs Like Tree Trunks’ most recent release was 2012’s Future Reference. Check out their Key Studio Session here.
