the lofi bedroom indie/rock of new york's the aquatic safety can charm a listener immediately. off-kilter british invasion melodies with a kitchen sink of instruments and effects floating in the soup of bedroom recording in the classic mode. their latest album 'boldly going nowhere' is even more melodically driven than their last effort, 'dr. zizmor never dies', which i covered awhile back.
i hate to do this (it bugs me when music writers do this comparison thing), but these guys do scream out for a guided by voices comparison. however, their production can become much more maximal than anything king shit and the golden boys ever tried without the help of a car.
get it here.
