Man I'm a sucker for bands that list Camera Obscura as one of their main influences, and also happen to do a decent job of living up to that standard... Club 8 meets Camera Obscura is what we have here, and I like. Smile

I'm trying to decide on a road trip to Athens, GA this weekend for the Saturday afternoon show at the Caledonia Lounge... hmmm..

Sounds like The Hermit Crabs, who, of course, sound like early Camera Obscura.

I didn't quite make it to the Athens gig due to car issues, but did make it to the Oct. 8 show in Chicago. Very Happy

I updated my RYM list, with probably the longest entry for any band I've done, because they're more than one band. Smile Here's a copy/paste:

I've been assimilated by VTY...resistance was futile

Live Mar. 3, 2010 at Subterranean in Chicago:

Breakthruradio Jul. 9, 2010 audio interview and tracks from the NY Popfest:
http://www.breakthruradio.com/index.php?show=10829

Releases:
2010 "Across The Sea", well not released yet but despite the poor audio quality on the youtube vid, you can hear it's one of their best tunes. Can't wait to get this in HQ!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=505-7jEVeQ8
2010 "Things You Used to Say" CD LP via Skywriting
2009 "Reminders" CD EP available from the band, PM at myspace or email them for their paypal address and total
2008 Cloudberry "801" 3" CDR release, with "1,2,3,4" and "Pop Song '91". Very limited release of 100 copies, but they had 1 left at the Oct. 8 gig. Smile You can find the tracks on this blog:
http://indiemp3couk.wordpress.com/2009/05/07/very-truly-yours-and-co/
2008 "Uncertain Times" on the "Starting Anew: A WeePOP-UP Complilation" WEEPOP026 limited 3" CDR release. Good luck trying to locate an official copy...it's nowhere to be found but on megaupload (that site seems infested with driveby virus attacks, make sure your antivirus software is working or use Firefox on a Ubuntu Linux PC or VM).

Kristine and Lisle have a few other projects:
Tiny Fireflies has a similar style to the Brittle Stars. Stunningly gorgeous songs and released for free on eardrumspop. Can't wait for more releases from this project. After the Brittle Stars broke up, there's been a void in that style sound...(yeah Elephant Parade is great, but it's not the same style, except for Grand Opening)

Listen to You Disappear and Lazy Heart on repeat and you get warped into an alternate universe... a bit like Douglas Heart's debut. The album "Home" was released in 2008 on cassette on the now defunct BestKeptSecret label, so I've only have heard what's on the myspace and blogs. This following link just appeared in my recent google search (Nov. 2, 2010), and it looks like it may be re-released on CD! I'm going to email Kristine for confirmation.

Morgenleah's distributor:

Most of VTY was in The Lorimer Sound and they released one limited EP on Weepop. It's a rock&roll version of VTY and most excellent. Like the other Weepop release I mentioned, you will not likely be able to find it... but on the following blog the EP is being streamed:
http://smiss.tistory.com/entry/WeePOP021-The-Lorimer-Sound-Greenstreets-2
There are also 3 non-EP tracks on the myspace, some leaning more towards VTY's current sound.

Earlier somewhat experimental projects (Lisle was involved on one track and Kristine sings on all):
http://www.myspace.com/thestarlettecanvas
http://www.myspace.com/shandybangsmusic
http://www.myspace.com/superlovers

And for completeness (male vocals), Lisle's excellent Fireflies project:

Oh yeah...I made it to the Oct. 8, 2010 gig at The Empty Bottle in Chicago, and it was totally worth the trip. They're playing there again Nov. 16. Attend if ya can!

oh i very truly like these guys! they are so much like early CO maybe a little more etheral and lowfi in the vocals but even some of the melodies could be from a long lost songbook of TAC.. if anything, i almost think that is a downside to them - as though the next album or eps will bring more of their own style out to make them more distinctive.. dont get me wrong, i'm really enjoying the songs i've heard and looking forward to more from this fresh band!
bolony

very nice work sixthofmay!! and really?? you're in Florida and were (almost) able to go to Athens show and Chicago?? own yer own private jet do ya? wow.

edit - oh wait... athens GEORGIA? duh... pay no mind to the man behind the curtain..
