TRACK 5 DIIV - "Doused" - another unsigned gem (HOW THE FUCK IS THIS NOT SIGNED? Lookin atchoo, Matador). Captured Tracks has the corner on the singles and demos so they'll hopefully run riot on the record. Brooklyn boys led by Zachary Cole Smith of the Beach Fossils offer up midie janglecore with balls of midnight. It's rockin and reppin'. (pronounced "dive" btw). Checksies the facebookery at http://www.facebook.com/divebk and go get it wherever you can.
The Temper Trap's eponymous debut album features a shot of ink in water and the cover, and more of the same inside. Not the most original idea, perhaps, but when it's done well, it is an undeniably beautiful thing.
