Alligators is an interesting band from the Seattle area. They cite the influence of Radiohead, The Zombies, and The Beach Boys, but I think they're still trying to figure out what their style is. Their new album, called Piggy & Cups, was recorded in the same studio as Death Cab's Narrow Stairs. It's a strange choice for an album name, but I think Alligators are a band full of potential. Here's a song called "Where Does It Hide?" from the new album, along with a link to the video.
