Blue States (MySpace) has been around for a while. Nine years to be precise. And somehow, the London trio never passed under my radar. Damn.
Lucky for me and all of you in a similar boat, though, there's a new record coming out on Memphis Industries called First Steps Into ... . (But they've had three albums out already! What the hell is wrong with me!? And they're Memphis Industries most successful signing!? Gah!)
The new material sounds like what would happen if Air went West and became extremely pampered pretty-boy cowboys. Serenely composed and arranged atmospheric electronic music with heavy leanings towards the summery sounds of later-period Beach Boys and the like. The album's looking fantastic to me, so download the first track off of it and get prepared for it to actually drop!
