This release isn't particularly new. But the band is new to me.

And they are very, very good.

Slant 6 meets Siouxsie? Not sure if that comparison works for everyone, but it works for me.

PINS - Luvu4lyf. iTunes.

Like most music from Iceland this is interesting. It is worth checking out. One part Mum. One part pop vocals.

It should be noted I'm pretty obsessed with Beyonce's "Halo." And this cover does not disappoint.

Hjaltalin - Crack In a Stone. iTunes.

I'm instantly reminded of The Smiths. But at the same time they don't sound like The Smiths. High Hazels take me back. Like so many other current acts. But they are certainly modern and stand on their own.

High Hazels - Hearts Are Breaking. iTunes.

Missed Opportunity

Bold played last week. I should have seen them. But I didn't. I never have. Even though they've been playing out on and off for a few years.

Bold - Looking Back. amazon.com. Used.

I posted a Theme Park single before. It prompted me to buy the full-length. I'd like to see them.

I always want to say they remind me of Vampire Weekend. But they actually don't at all. Bombay Bicycle Club? I got nothing.

I'm very unhelpful. Recommended!

Theme Park. amazon.com. New.

Not to be confused with Mineral. The recently reunited mid-nineties emo band.

Catching Up With

I always forget how much I liked this song when it came out.

I'm really enjoying everything I've heard from Temples. Sadly I missed them a few months ago. And I'll likely miss them again next month because I don't know if I'm up for a "Morgan's Pier" event...

As for why you should check them out? They sound a bit like T-Rex? That should be enough for anyone.

Temples - Keep in the Dark. iTunes.

An instrumental Stereolab? There are worse things in the world.

(That's actually not a bad thing at all.)

Cavern of Anti-Matter - Blood-Drums. iTunes.
