songs you don’t know: The Big Pink, “Velvet”

17 Mar

I literally heard this song an hour ago, but I love it.  It’s like (BAND X) meets (BAND Y).

Or… well, it’s like a more atmospheric, weird version of that electro-rock stuff that’s makin’ a splash these days, somewhere between MGMT and TV on the Radio.  Or… um… what Depeche Mode would be doing now if they were new.

Video probably NSFW.  Nothing too graphic, but it’s full of Artsy Bondage Imagery(tm) and your vanilla co-workers might freak out.

Seriously.  Give it a listen, tell me what you think.  I’m digging this song a lot, and can’t wait until the single comes out in April.  (they’re on 4AD… you could’ve guessed.)

    Pretty cool, sounds considerably “darker” than MGMT, the beats and vibe anyway. I can’t put my finger on who they remind me of and it’s bothering me.
