I was introduced to Cousteau on my Burning Man trip this year (four days in a RV give lots of time for musical variation to hit the CD player). I was impressed with singer Liam McKahey's vocals and the entire band's take on modernized 60s-style lounge pop. I've heard their second album is actually better, but this first one is no slouch and has a polish and sure-footedness that most freshmen bands would envy. Oh, and incidentally track #3 on the album is entitled "Mesmer" :).
