THREE new posts to kick off this new week, so bear with me, folks! The first hails from Black Sea, a US-based four piece post-punk band who releaed just one (appropriately titled) LP in 1990. The band formed in New Jersey and had a sound comparable with early Cure, The Church, etc. with a slightly harder edge. The LP was released on a small label, the local No. 6 Records, but distributed by Rough Trade, which no doubt earned the band a small cult following.
Various sources allude to another released track, on a C'est La Morte compilation, but I can't seem to confirm it for sure. Feel free to drop a line if anyone has any further information on these guys. That said, here's the info for the LP:
Black Sea- An Early Fall LP 1. Washed Away 2. Immigrant Song 3. Hope 4. Mix 5. Killing Time 6. Darkest Days 7. Empty Fields 8. River Runs Red

Track 2 is indeed a cover of the infamous Led Zeppelin track, but with a fresh new take! Enjoy, and stay tuned for more goodies! I have a bunch of new stuff in this vein (more guitar-driven) so coldwave/post-punk fans, rejoice!
