Dreamy pop songs, heavy on reverb and My Bloody Valentine-esque showers of shoegaze fuzz... what's not to love about The Procedure Club?
Last year I started seeing babydoll dresses pop up on fashionistas riding the NYC subway, and cringed at the thought of '90s culture resurrected... will everyone get the haircut from Friends and start wearing Bongo jeans again?? Fashion fears aside, I can certainly get behind present day sonic harkenings to the glory days of 'zines and indie rock. Especially in the case of Procedure Club, where a modern interpretation of the old form has its own special twists.
Adam and Andrea of New Haven, CT, are the duo behind the sweet sounds presented below, and they've just released an excellent new album on the Slumberland label, "Doomed Forever," which I adore.
We've just got ahold of a few netreleases by the Procedure Club here at the FMA that I recommend: an EP called "Beko 09" on the venerable Beko Digital Single Label out of France who just joined the FMA's ranks, as well as the band's self-titled album from 2008 (on the Skribble Kite label). Take a listen to a few of my favorite tracks below and bliss out.
