After Dave’s most appropriate post, I thought I would continue along the same path. I’ll be writing in a few days about the forthcoming U.S. debut by My Latest Novel, but tonight I stumbled upon a recording by one of their new U.S. labelmates, Peter & the Wolf. It’s a furtive little diddy, with plaintive, expressive vocals. Even better, according to the Seattle Stranger, it’s appropriate music for a “post-apocalyptic, godforsaken planet.” Finally, music for the new millennium.
The band is actually playing this week in Denver, although I doubt I can attend. They will be playing at the Empty Bottle in Chicago this coming Saturday. I think they’re worth checking out, especially if you’re into that whole post-apocalyptic, experimental indie thing.
