Colour Revolt is an indie rock band from Oxford, Mississippi named after Edwin Abbott’s mathematical novel, Flatland. They were named the Best New Band From Mississippi by the Boston paper The Phoenix. There aren't that many good bands out of Mississippi, but these guys are still a good listen. The group has performed at SXSW and toured with Dinosaur Jr., Black Lips, Okkervil River, Menomena, Explosions in the Sky, Malajube, Anathallo, and Manchester Orchestra. I'd say they are most similar to Manchester Orchestra.
