My (latest) new favourite band
Love Of Diagrams hail from Melbourne, Australia (which is pretty cool) and are signed to Matador, which usually bodes pretty well. Maybe they have been getting plenty of coverage that I have missed, but having read about them at Insound and heard a couple of mp3s at the matador site, I decided it was time that anyone else out there who hadn't heard them might like to, too.
What do they sound like? For recent music, I hear the mathematical influence suggested by their name shared by Forward, Russia, the gorgeous madness of Love Is all, with a dashing of the Long Blondes. I know post-punk is applied to so much these days, but the hints of the Au Pairs and Kleenex/liliput that I hear here suggest the label is appropriate.
Love of Diagrams -'No Way Out.' mp3
Love Of Diagrams -'Pace Or the Patience.' mp3
I have literally just heard them this evening - but the album is available from iTunes, though as always, check your local independent shop or Amazon.
Support the band, and let me know what you think...
