kexp never lets me down. this week they introduce me to school of seven bells, a brooklyn based group that met in 2004 while on tour with their own bands, on!air!libraries! & secret machine. i highly recommend picking up alpinisms, i'm not quite sure why i like it so much, but i think it has something to do with the airy vocals & dancey beats. it's the kind of music you play when you are driving up to the mountains early in the morning; it allows you to wake up & get pumped at the same time. it feels like a sunny, winter day.
it's worth noting that they are playing at neumo's on tuesday, nov 25.
