Good piece on Ducktails, with references to a bunch of other bands I dug in 2009:http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/feb/03/new-band-ducktails
I wrote a little bit about the album, Landscapes, here.
I keep waiting for "Landrunner" to break into..."She seems to have an invisible touch, yeah..."
"Friends" could be the instrumental track from a song at the end of a Bryan Ferry album. I can picture his voice above the mix. For fun, people should be making vocal tracks for it! That would be a cool form of 'remixing!'
These songs morph into every 80s pop song I can remember from my childhood.
Good call on the Bryan Ferry; I'd love to hear his voice with this music.
