new telepathic friends

new telepathic friends is a band i stumbled across a few years ago. it's pretty gentle indie stuff featuring jeremy from julia. they have a 7 song cdep that's still available, it's a lovely little release. it's pretty low-key and simple, but works well. kind of a bit like ida or pohgoh or something. here's a track.

i was not massively into this band's album as a whole but this song came on whilst i was on the bus this evening. killer slomo for fans of shores / boilermaker. not to be confused with rep seki.

strictly ballroom lp

went on a strictly ballroom 'bender' last night. what a great lp, very pretty music. here's a few choice 'cuts'. i hadn't listened to the lp in a very long time, so it was a pleasure to rediscover it.

coasts / everywhere you look

ok, it's 2012. probably time for an update.

summit hall by everywhere you look. best 1 song emo band of the past 5 years i would say. this is just amazing. repetitious, building, midwestmo, so gorgeous. ending isn't great, but the first few minutes are amazing.

coasts! pre-monument i think? i like this more than monument anyway. this is so beautiful. sad, whiney midwestmo. bands, do this kind of thing.
