If you like brooding indie pop tunes exploring the angst of maturing, or just a groovy breed of alternative meloncholy, then this band might be for you. The album is produced by Chris Zane
, whose more notable projects include Asobi Seksu
and Les Savy Fav
. Cool credentials, and appropriately so; this is a sound people can get into.
Bridges and Powerlines
, at only a few years old (the band formed in 2005), have created an album that is both pop-friendly and exploratory. Their debut full length, entitled Ghost Types
, dropped at the end of last month. The songwriting is solid, and vocalist Andrew Wood
almost sounds like a New York version of Colin Meloy
. Maybe if Colin was the frontman for The Old 97's.
Pick up the record, or if you live in New York, check out an upcoming show. -joe puglisi
