Venice Is Sinking - Azar
So I've been going through this year's AthFest lineup (Athens, GA) to try to find some sort of reason why I should go other than to drink. I've found a few pretty decent bands that don't sound like they should be playing shit like this. Anyway, this band is more than just decent, they're incredible. Venice Is Sinking play indie that's kind of like a blend of Arcade Fire, Beirut, Red House Painters, and some other retarded namedrop I can add. I guess I'll throw in the term "slowcore" to entice you like it enticed me on their last.fm page, even though there's not a hint of slowcore anywhere in this album.
