of Luck, the band's third album, will be released Oct. 14, 2008
Expansive, textured, modern and fresh, Condo combines Ryan McNeil's
ethereal guitar work with Mary Ann Paredes's melodic
keyboards and the powerful rhythm unit comprised of Dan Falt (bass)
and Patrick Paredes (drums). James Roe, a U.K. import, provides
a context for the music with his keenly observed tales of the
darker temptations of big-city life. Condo, which harbors at least
two recent indie-rock cliches -- a brother and a sister and a
husband and wife
-- channels the cool glare of Bauhaus and the Fall with the playfulness
of Siouxsie and the Banshees.
Gemini: This Is How I Found You - Out Now!!
Is How I found You', the new album by New York chanteuse Miwa
Gemini, takes on the darkest affairs of the heart with a saccharine
smile, haunting vocals and a bag full of riffs you wont hear anywhere
else. A multi-instrumentalist, Miwa incorporates guitar, banjo,
mandolin and piano to drive powerful songs of loss and redemption:
Think Nina Simone meets Bjork, and you're getting close. This
Is How I Found You is scheduled to be released March 18th 2008.
