I had my day perfectly planned out. I was going to sit at work and listen to the new Blood on the Wall record all day. It was such a nice simple plan, but one that was so easily foiled by a band called Morning Spy (or more specifically, their song "Princess Vancouver").
Im going to have to make this quick, so here's what their website says, "Morning Spy is a San Francisco-based indie pop band invested in electric guitar textures and fuzzy, yet intricate songwriting. The Silver Age, set for release by KEEP Recordings and the newborn Abandoned Love Records in February 2005, marks the point at which the bands' ambition and insticts intersect their execution. The Silver Age draws from much of the modern history of outsider pop, at times evoking early 70's glitter rock, reverb-drenched dream pop, the lo-fi sentiment, heady soundscapes and occasional bombast. From the crashing arc of "Princess Vancouver" to the peircing guitar solo that closes "Voices & Vigils", The Silver Age is loaded with enough thoughtful excess and swirling artifice to hint at such descriptors as concept album and magnum opus."
Princess Vancouver (Highly Rec'd!!!)
Buy The Silver Age from KEEP Recordings. Stumble It!
