A few posts ago I said I had been listening to the new small black album ‘limits of desire’ on the excellent jajaguwar label and it has been on and off my headphones ever since, so about time I posted a track from it.
Small Black (hailing from New York) have always been a band I liked. Wrongly lobbed in with the term chill wave, they always matched gorgeous melodies with a lo-fi indie aesthetic and tremendous songs. This album is far more polished and is much more firmly in the electronic pop realm. But it is infectious and while accessible the more you listen the more it gives back – the more you appreciate it.
The track I have posted up is a perfect example of my description and one that is accessible to listen to on soundcloud, but there are amazing tracks on the album such as Sophie. It’s an awesome set so do check out, perfect for these summer days.
