School of Seven Bells

Posted October 30th, 2008 by k

I’ve been enjoying the new album from Brooklyn’s School of Seven Bells lately and figured I should mention it here on the Drawer, seeing as they’re on tour and playing with Drawer B faves, M83. Speaking of M83, that’s a good starting off point for comparison. Lush, gauzed ethereal vocals, electronic walls of noise, lap-pop bleets and bloops. A dash of Stereolab, a smidge of Broadcast, a dollop of Cocteau Twins and beat you can almost dance to. It’s quite an appealing cocktail when it works.

I’m looking forward to catching them in a few weeks with M83.
