After finding a promo CD single from this band with Kara DioGuardi (American Idol) and David Stewart of the Eurythmics both mentioned, I kept an eye out for the full album.
The Verdict: I'm pretty knowledgeable about music but I had never heard of this before. David and Kara teamed up and released an album which pretended to be from 1974 and a precursor to the classic Fleetwood Mac sound. Surprisingly good, most notably the effective and nuanced vocals.
Gracer - Voices Travel (2006)
This indie release was cheap and I liked the cover.
The Verdict: Another surprise, with engaging melodies and a full sound. Lyrically adventurous. Not bad at all. Reminds me of Athlete.
Built For The Sea - Mise En Scene (2008)
I totally bought this for the beautiful art on the digipak, which was even tied with a bow.
The Verdict: A 5 track EP, the first number was nothing special. Halfway through the second track I was thinking about the relative weak vocals against the dark and swirling melodies. I was going to dismiss it but then I thought, if this was a Cure song I'd think it was brilliant alright. With that reference point, I really liked the middle three tracks. So overall a good, interesting release. Sounds better in the car, actually.
