Song of the Day - July 1, 2005

Time to hop on a plane and leave Seattle and head east to another city that holds immense musical talent, London. Here we find Weevil, a two man band, perhaps best known for providing the opening tune to Mac's operating system. If you desire something more substantial, I recommend their track "Half Smile." The sound is reminiscent of New Order, with touches of Human League. They also have been compared to My Bloody Valentine. The track has some IDM type beats thrown into the mix, but has that melancholy feel, alternating with periods of happiness. It is a bittersweet sound perhaps epitomized by New Order, which I hugely adore. Click here to listen.

Wow, good stuff. That song - and the rest of the album - definately has that New Order-esque background... while still ending up with a rather different result.

I like it.
