Red Sea Station

Add Date: May 5

Artist: Red Sea Station

Album: Red Sea Station

Label: Self-released

Genre: Rock, indie pop

Comments: From the promotional material on Red Sea Station's eponymous debut: "Inspired by the dreamy and ethereal soundscapes of late-'80s British pop, unbridled optimism, over-the-top vocal sounds, intricately woven electronic arrangements and an American Indie ethos." Among the influences claimed by the band are Ride, The Beach Boys, Aphex Twin and Superchunk; they've been compared to everyone from of Montreal to Phoenix to Modest Mouse. This is pretty enjoyable pop music; start with "The Streets Are Whispering."
