sometimes i feel inspired by listening to LO-FI music that in terms of aesthetics is mining the deep well of MINIMALISM. that whole 'less is more' concept put in practice with lots of negative space. AUSTIN-by-way-of-ARIZONA GARAGE ROCK band HARLEM very much strikes that delicate sonic balance with MELODIC yet DISSONANT skeletons of songs that sound quite more POWERFUL than youd expect coming from this MINUTEST of INDIE ROCK trios. guitar, bass, drums and earnestly felt top line melodies that make their music soar.
not really sure what else you need. HARLEM, as well as all their splinter groups (DAYTONA, LACE CURTAINS, GRAPE ST and LAS ROSAS) are well worth checking out.
