Dire abeyance

Peter & the Wolf

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.

“Safe Travels,” from the forthcoming LP, Lightness.  MySpace site with additional songs.

    So, why is it bands I’ve never heard before I pre-judge based on their friends on MySpace and their “sounds like”? Anyways, these guys are friends with all bands I’ve never heard of and their “sounds like” is random, which I also dig. And oh, the music sounds pretty decent. If I wasn’t already hitting the Empty Bottle on the 20th, then I’d opt to see Peter and his Wolf. Solid post.
