Flint Eastwood is a hip-hop/indie rock five-piece has only been around since last year, but they've wasted no time, releasing an EP and a self-titled full-length in the span of five months.
While the band's influences are all over the place (Kid Cudi, Nirvana, N.E.R.D., Tool, Blink 182, Sade, U.G.K. and Rage Against the Machine), Flint Eastwood nonetheless melds these into a cohesive, if uncommon sound.
Exhibit A: the soulful, moody "Stars."
