Dead Leaf Echo [New York City] "Pale Fire" was mixed by Ulrich Schnauss, so of course THAT track is great! He made it all ethereal and stuff. Dead Leaf Echo played with the Black Angels and Soundpool, so at least they can brag about that. Me not too fond of the dramatic yawning vocals though, sorry!
Cavedoll [Salt Lake City] Cheesy band name, semi-cheesy music. But look at them! How can you not love them! The band has and plans to put out a ridiculous amount of albums, wooo. i'm not sure if their disco-synth dance rock is tongue in cheek or being taken very seriously. Maybe a little of both. "Tokyo" is pretty fun and "Mexico" is upbeat as if the Bravery got very happy. "Full of Awe" is the sound of the B-52's forced to adjust to electro.
