The Baroque Rock Of The Spring Standards

    Sometimes you categorize an artist as baroque pop -- Arcade Fire, Feist, etc. -- because they tie lush arrangements to the pop model. But, now, I have another band to call baroque rock besides the National -- who were the only band to earn that moniker from me prior. We're premiering a live performance of "Watch the Moon Disappear" from New York rock act The Spring Standards, and it's impossible not to fall immediately in love.

    Fusing elements of modern folk with gorgeous, complex rock arrangements and even a hint of a harder edge, The Spring Standards sound like no one else out there -- except, perhaps, a version of the National with a female lead vocalist. But even then, there's enough element of late 70s soft-rock country (think Fleetwood Mac) to distinguish themselves from everybody's favorite Brooklyn sad rockers.

    The video is taken from their Live From Delaware series, and it's making me sad that I'm not going to be able to catch them when they're here in Manhattan next week at the Mercury Lounge. Be sure to buy tickets here if you enjoy the video.
