A local garage rock group which consists of teenage brothers Emmett and Cullen O'Connor on keys and vocals, Archie and the Bunkers have made some serious headway since forming in 2013.

The two guys initially began recording music in their basement and self-produced their first two EPs (Comrade X and Trade Winds). Last year, the group issued its first full-length album on the UK-based Dirty Water Records. The guys recorded the album's 12 songs at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit with famed producer/engineer Jim Diamond.



Now, the band has just released the follow-up, Mystery Lover. Jason Tarulli, the front of house engineer for the Black Keys, recorded the EP at his
Studio Time recording studio in Akron. Nick Knox, former drummer of the Cramps, worked as Senior Advisor on the album, which opens with the rousing Doors-like track “All That Lovin.'" The album is currently streaming on the band's website

The band plans to debut several new songs when it plays on Sept. 3 at the Grog Shop for its first Cleveland show since returning from a European tour. Later in September, the band will perform at Third Man Records in Nashville and record a live 7-inch. Then, on Oct. 1, the band will play Gonerfest in Memphis.
