______________

Brooklyn band World Atlas started in 2006 as a handful of four-track bedroom demos- sketches of songs mirroring stories afforded by the city. The idea culminated in a full ensemble including guest member Fred Thomas of Saturday Looks Good to Me on guitar and The Umbrella Girls, who often serve as the groups hand clappers, back-up singers and tambourine shakers. Their first self-titled EP is a pop atlas steeped in nostalgia and allegory that exudes an aesthetic of a library of weathered books, stolen glances and faded colors. Their instrumentation includes vibraphone, organ, shakers, trumpet and string arrangements taking the music beyond the pop confines of drums, bass and guitar. Infused with boy / girl harmonies and countermelodies the resulting songs depict both innocence and experience. World Atlas fit comfortably into the orchestral pop genre and also draw on earlier pop influences like Donovan, The Smiths, The Velvet Underground and French YY. Their first EP was released on Magic Marker Records in March, 2010 and work on a full-length follow up is underway.

Soon Soon Soon! Check these guys out! They are seriously amazing. A bit like Belle & Sebastian which in my book means much goodness!

:stupid:

Euan and myself will also be supporting in our current get-up "Tommy Tungsten"

indie/folky acoustic nonsense with guitars, mandolin and accordion...
