Beach Fossils. A: Shallow. AA: Lessons. Captured Tracks, 2012. Enough jangle to warm our hearts--at least until these Brooklynites' 2nd full length is released later this year. Watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYDGUWZ8iRY
OMD. A: Messages. B1: Waiting For The Man, B2: Taking Sides Again. DinDisc, 1980. In its 10" form, this track deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Kraftwerk's "The Model" or Visage's "Fade To Grey" as the jewels of eighties synth-pop.
