School of Seven Bells - SVIIB - 2016
This album was written and performed by the two of them right up until his death, but then it was produced later but only released in February of this year. As Rolling Stone described, its a cross between Shoegaze, Indie Rock, Dream Pop and Electronic, and I have to agree. You can't really pigeon-hole this one, and I love it. It's got some complex sounds and beautiful vocals and the melodies are striking and addictive. I'll find myself humming their songs all the time.
There aren't any b-sides or remixes from this album, but I did pop a remix that they did for Civil Twilight on there, and it fits right in. If you've listened to their album that I posted last month and liked it, you will be even more surprised to hear how good this one is. I venture to say that this is my favorite album of 2016, and we're only halfway through the year.
It's that good. Download it and try it. If you don't like it I'll refund you with the post of your choice....
Just kidding. Like I'd ever give this up, even for a post ;)
