The Numerators play a no-frills form of garage-psych similar to West Coast acts like the Intelligence or Thee Oh Sees, but distilled down to gloriously monotonous two- or three-chord riffs and a steady beat. Having just released a 7-inch with Suicide Squeeze, longtime label for Atlanta's own the Coathangers, the Brooklyn trio now comes to Star Bar alongside a maxed-out bill featuring Vegan Coke, Faun and a Pan Flute, A. Grimes, Gibberish Fuckattack, Emily Kempf, Hurricanes of Love, and Arvid Noe.
A-side "Dead" showcases the Numerators' quieter side, featuring a drugged, lethargic drum beat to carry the dark tune of echoed, reverebed pop. It's a hallucinogenic dirge masked as a love song for slow dancing. Think John Dwyer on downers. B-side "Finally Sees" picks up the pace a bit with a surfy thrash of yelpy vocals and barely contained rambunction.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
