mp3: Alex Calder – Light Leave Your Eyes

When it comes to all things jangle-pop, indie-rock and lo-fi, there aren’t many labels with a better line up right now than Captured Tracks.  The newest single from the label comes from Alex Calder, which is either a guy with some art lovers for parents or a band that have forever condemned themselves to google search obscurity.  On the real though, “Light Leave Your Eyes” shows a lot of promise for the group that could give the mobile maker some competition a few years down the line.  “Light Leave Your Eyes” has Alex Calder following in the footsteps of fellow Captured Tracks signees DIIV, Mac DeMarco and Beach Fossils with a heavy veil of jangle and reverb covering their composition.  Maybe I’m just hopelessly addicted to this sound but “Light Leave Your Eyes” manages to stand out from being average with a great use of guitar dynamics that keep the track interesting throughout the 3 gorgeous minutes.
