The Darcys

Add Date: November 8 

Artist: The Darcys 

Album: The Darcys 

Label: Arts & Crafts 

Genre: Indie, alternative 

Comments: So apparently a lot of people are really pumped for this Toronto band's new self-titled Arts & Crafts album. (Arts & Crafts is Broken Social Scene's label.) The promotor gave us some really shining reviews, so I'll share the most interesting and enlightening of them: "These guys have a serious knack for creating massive, lushly layered soundscapes punctuated by fuzzy guitars and ethereal falsetto," says Uptown Magazine; Ben Rayner of The Toronto Star called the album "a monstrously tuneful prog rock epic that improbably finds common ground between Radiohead and Steely Dan."

So if that doesn't get you excited to check them out, I don't know what will. This is a good album. According to the promotor, you'll like The Darcys if you like British Sea Power, The Stills, The Dears or Radiohead. This album is about what you'd expect after hearing that, I think. If you're looking for something slower and more chill, try tracks 1 or 4. If you want something a little more high-energy, go with 2, 5 or 7.
