I’m all about helping to get independent labels a little promo; as long as it fits my selfish musical needs. Despite their name The Fembots do not make electro-euro trash, nor are they a new robot inspired, indie-rock band. Instead (at least on this song) they create a lilting, rollicking brand of americana with piano, guitar and emotive vocals.
The band itself started as a duo and was playing what Paper Bag Records described as “industrial folk”, apparently their early sound was created on protools and consited of electronic textures and an odd assortment of sounds. The word organic has been used to describe their upcoming record The City (the band is from Toronto). I agree with that assessment as it sounds like the duo which started out as a studio creation has evolved into a full fledged band. Here’s a new song off of The City (Paper Bag Records, Sept. 6).
