School of Seven Bells ~ Disconnect from Desire

Recommended Posts

School of Seven Bells on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Whilst I was quite keen on their debut album (I only heard about them from the Secret Machines connection), I never expected the leap forward in quality that is Disconnect from Desire. It's a fantastic meld of dream pop vocals and shoegaze guitars, but with a strong pop sensibility. It is an album that is growing more and more on me, every time one of their new singles comes on 6 Music I want to do a little dance in my lab. I wont, as that will make me look like a mental.

Any thoughts on the new album?

I like it but maybe haven't listened to it enough. That said I was a bit unsure of them from their first album but am definitely keener on this. Good shimmery pop as you say.

Havent heard the new one yet but i liked the last album!

Im going to New York with my brother in December for a 4 day trip and randomly the first night we get there The Walkmen are playing with School of Seven Bells as support! My bro got tickets - pretty stoked!

Will definitely have to check out the new SO7B album before then.

Do you know if they are any good live?

They have just lost a member according to Pitchfork.

I'd been meaning to get round to buying the first album, finally picked it up for a few quid on Play.com the other week, I really like it, although not quite what I expected to be honest, a lot more upbeat than anticipated. No doubt I shall get round to buying the new one eventually.

I saw them with Bat For Lashes last year and they certainly didn't disappoint. With The Walkmen though, that's a cracking line up!

That debut So7B album was an abomination. First Secret Machines was ace, though. And now the other Secret Machines brother has joined Interpol's live band, alongside David Pajo. Small world, this indie rock malarky.
