Doug Brod: “Essentially they are a three-piece that sounds like a poppier version of Nirvana. They’re very grunge but their music is very poppy, not a lot of angst.

Listen: Dinosaur Pile Up’s “Mona Lisa”

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
