New Music | Internet Forever

This post is due in part to my love of low-fi/"no-fi" punk influenced indie music.  I found Internet Forever while I was searching through the dusty caverns and crevices of the internet to find more music from a British band that I've grown to adore, PENS.  For me, it rekindles my love for girl punk (a la The Devotchkas and The Eyeliners), with the low-fi indie of the West Coast that I adore so.  They started out in Cambridge, England and have been around for a couple years.  Despite their little darling status at Pitchfork I can't help liking, heck loving, what I hear from Internet Forever.  I think Nothing But Green Lights had it right when they said, “Four track recorded glockenspiel anger meets teenage ideals,” in regards to Internet Forever's sound.

New Music | Fanfarlo

Fanfarlo's melodies are based off of intricately woven motifs, each one just as important as the other.  Their full length album, 'Reservoir'(2008) uses homespun, anthem-like, indie pop to draw listeners in.  Their on stage performances are nothing short of watching a family of musicians interact the best and happiest way they know how - harmonically.  They've been around since 2006, based out of London.   After finally listening all they way through their new album I can safely say I have a new favorite go-to for morning walks to the train. Reservoir is their only full length out currently, mostly they just have a small collection of EPs floating about, in addition to 'Reservoir'.

Tracks like Luna, The Walls Are Coming Down, I'm a Pilot, Harold T. Wilkins or How to Wait for a Very Long, are jingly anthems filled with brass and string accompaniment that make you want to jump in a pile of leaves and eat apples off the trees with a best friend.  Grab a hot cider put your headphones on and take stroll through the park while listening to 'Reservoir', the least it can do is make your heart a little bit fuller.

Listen to 'Luna'!
