Raised on early 80s electronic wizardry (Depeche Mode,
Yazoo, and OMD) and inspired by modern pop heroes (The Field Mice, Blueboy, and
Katerine), River is one of Frances brightest new stars!
Only one thing in the world can compare to a candy coated first kiss... and
that is Skypark. Their latest cdep on Shelflife confirms the suspicions of
anyone hearing their only other released track - "Pin Striped Suits" on the "Ive
Got it Now" compilation cassette (1997 Popfest Companion) - Skypark picks up
where Sarah 100 left off. Skyparks music can be described as sweet...
Imagine Echo and The Bunnymens epic "Ocean
Rain," "Pillar To Post"-era Aztec Camera and modern scan-indie sounds mixed into
one seething brew. The Sushi singer, Nancy, has a vocal style mixing Frida from
Swedens Cinnamon and St. Etiennes Sarah Cracknell. If youre a fan of Tokyos
Neo-Acoustic music scene or the smell of rain on asphalt, this will certainly be
on your top 10 list for 2000....
