Goodnight & Goodnight
Goodnight & Goodnight is one of my favorite myspace finds in the last few weeks. The band, whose members currently reside in the U.S. and Scotland, have been called "2007's Arcade Fire" (according to the band's myspace). By whom, I'm not sure...it could be a tongue in cheek declaration by the band themselves, but there's a chance it's not a completely far-fetched claim.
Their debut EP, Liar. Hypocrite. Demon. Fool, is currently being mastered by John Golden (Sonic Youth, Calexico), and is due out in June. Some of you will no doubt find frontman Nick Reiner's vocals a little abrasive at first, but upon further listen, I found these songs to be quite endearing and emotional.
