New Year, New York

This band pursued our blog a while ago, asking to send us some mp3s. I really got into the first song I heard, "Poison Lips". It's in my list of top plays on iTunes right now, next to "Motr"--the great Trans Am song.

The content itself, along with the other samples that can be heard on the bands website very reminiscent of that great "Damp Bar" sound of 1985-1995. Think of combining Echo & The Bunnymen's instrumental verse extensions with perhaps Tom of Editors? Have a go for yourself, I hope Pitchfork picks up on this group.

Dead Leaf Echo - Poison Lips

Make sure to visit their MySpace as well (not that we like to promote that site) for full songs, and everything else.
