Soundpool - Dichotomies & Dreamland

Just checked the old inbox and came across a band I had seen open for Asobi Seksu that I figured I had to pass along. As you can guess by their stage-mates, Soundpool are in the shoegazer genre, and do it quite well! If you haven't witnessed them live, then I would highly recommend checking them out in their current tour (dates below). Although the band, hailing from NYC, is typically compared to other gold-standard shoegazer bands, they tend to highlight much more of the electronic-end of the spectrum similar to Asobi, and both Beautiful Lunar Landscape and Keser (two of this blogger's favorites!). They have just released their sophomore album entitled "Dichotomies & Dreamland", which you can check out a few tracks from below:

mp3's to peak your interest:
Pleasure and Pain
The Divides of March
Lush (What Becomes of You)

Also check out their debut "On High" which is also a great listen!
