This starts out like Clap your hands....that crazy half scream, but really dramatically, way beyond what arcade fire or clap your hands, well not way beyond clap your hands, kind of similar. The songs on their myspace get very epic, like the annuals, or even dare I say it, Mogwai-ish, complete with tiny toy xylophone solos and speedty notes from guitars in outerspace echo chambers, perfect example Summer Gave us sweetness...that is a great, great song that builds and builds. They seem to all end in a huge chorus of voices. All of these comparisons don't make a lot of sense together, but I am really liking what I'm hearing. This single comes out tomorrow and I will be on the lookout for it.
It's very reasonably priced at Fantastic Plastic. (import)
