New Music from Like Bells!

One of the bands I really enjoy these days are "Like Bells" {myspace]. The Orberlin Ohio based bands second album "Palma" is out now.

If you poke around the band site you can find links to some mp3's to sample. Suggested are:

Follow the Birds - A plaintive falsetto vocal melody floats above a shifting and unsettled foundation. After a quiet interlude the song settles into an airy tribal groove that surges back to the original theme, reframed against a simple 3/4 meter.

Sea Salt - Violin and bass melodies weave in and out of a rolling guitar line, while humming processed textures develop and grow until the song erupts into a triumphant explosion of distortion and vocals. Instrumental evocations of tropical air and the pulse of ocean waves provide the backdrop for lyrics that tell of travel, love, and repetition.

Chamomile - A ballad-like meditation that unfolds slowly, driven by cello and electronic drums until reaching acacophonous close.

The label site for the band here.

Jump on it folks, you will dig!
