Pretty Lights

18 03 2010

I love this band. I don’t know how to describe it exactly, or what it is like. It’s not that experimental, but I’m at a loss for words. help! Maybe a mix of Radiohead, the Avalanches, Massive Attack, Stereolab and Lo-fidelity All-stars. But that’s such a crazy chaotic list. Please just check it out. I mean, it’s kind of electro-rockpop. But that makes it sound too trite.

I stumbled across them while playing around on hype machine. Gloriously, they post their albums for free download at http://www.prettylightsmusic.com/#/downloads. I’ve been listening to the album Making Up A Changing Mind and am totally digging it. I really think all the tracks are good, but maybe start with Future Blind and I Can See It In Your Face.

I recommend turning up the bass, at least for the last minute of I Can See It In Your Face.

Oh man, I can’t get enough of this album!!!
