I like what I've heard of the Seedy Seeds. I also *really* like the song Garden by the Lions Rampant, but that's the only song I know of theirs. It doesn't even really seem like something I'd like normally (i.e., I might hate the rest of their catalogue), but that song in particular is just straight-up, straight-forward solid rock, done well. With horns.
Some friends of mine have played shows with the Pomegranates. I thought they were ok. Great band name though.
