I generally don’t pile on the blog bandwagon but I can’t not post about the band Theater Fire. Credit to Sixeyes for the discovery, although they’ve been the talk of Texas for a while now. This Texas band impossibly mixes mariachi, folk, country and jazz with experimental weirdness.
Everybody Has A Darker Side is their second record and is available now on Undeniable. On “Hey Jimmy” alone there is a cute little backing chorus, tinkling bells, the aformentioned mariachi horns, and even a little vibraphone. “Fiddleback Weaver” is the got-to track on the disc but from all I’ve heard the whole thing is incredibly great. Buy it here now, well before it’s August release date.
Updated Dec. 30: Imho yesterday’s Swedesplease post was one in a million (too bad everyones on vacation). Imagine finding a perfect Creation era fuzzy shoegaze pop gem from Sweden as well as an indiepop band from Indonesia which records for a label out of Lima, Peru. On top of that I threw in a new song from My Darling You. Get `em all here.
