Band: The Blakes

Release: Art of Losses

Label: PledgeMusic

Release date: July 24th

The third LP from this Seattle trio was produced by the band in the mountains of Maine, yielding a dozen literate, dreamy indie pop songs, perfect for lazing away a day in the Seattle sun. The band clearly have an affinity for all kinds of rock & roll, from Britpop ("Black Carnation") to '80s-era Stones ("Sea Fishing") to new wave ("Dark Is The Night") and even The Strokes ("Paralysis"), but the album never feels wholly derivative thanks to its own identity which finds comfort in blankets of reverb and waves of nostalgia. You can download the record from PledgeMusic, which is like Kickstarter specifically for bands. You can see the band's pledge video after the jump.
