MP3 At 3PM: Sherlock’s Daughter

What started as a solo outlet for Arthur Conan Doyle-obsessed Tonya Horo has quickly turned into the hotly tipped trio known as Sherlock’s Daughter, an experimental pop band from Australia that’s beginning to make a splash in the U.S. NPR, Village Voice, Interview and even Thurston Moore have taken note, and we’re pretty impressed ourselves, as Horo and Co. weave a dense and textured cloak around songs that could easily find a home in the next Michael Cera film. As on “Kids,” the results are nuanced but playful, nodding toward an interest in leftfield aesthetics but a predilection for accessibility. Sherlock’s Daughter’s eponymous, self-released EP is available now through iTunes.
