SOUND team and Nest
A late night cup of joe and an ensuing bout of insomnia kept me up late last night, forcing me to find ways to spend away these leftover iTunes gift cards. As a necessary coldfront settled onto Dallas, and recent episodes of 'The Office' consumed my download queue, I was a bit surprised to encounter this in the music store's Dec. 27 new releases bin. I've been onto these guys for a while, and all I can really say is that one would be remiss not to shell out the 5 ducats for SOUND team's 'Work' EP. From the looks of it, 'Work' was just jointly released by Capitol and the band's own Big Orange Records, a pretty interesting development. Go for it, people of the night, go for it all. Go!
I was also consumed last night by some tracks that showed up in my mailbox from Nest (the band). I think the word that would best describe Nest frontwoman Ayana's voice would be "sultry", or maybe "sensuous". The Twilight Garden recommends Nest for anyone that needs help hooking it up with the ladies (e.g., most bloggers). I recommend Nest for fans of Fiona, Cat Power, and Imogen Heap.
