mp3: White Arrows- Roll Forever

I honestly can’t remember the last indie-rock group that has been as consistently awesome as White Arrows without uses layers of reverb and other “nostalgic effects”.  Tracks like their latest, ‘Roll Forever’, remind me of how I felt when listening to Phoenix a few years back.  Their sound isn’t all that unique or different, but they have a knack for making their music really memorable.  ’Roll Forever’ shows off a lot of ambition and production quality for the group.  The instrumentation is diverse and I think I even hear a horn during one of the bridge sections.  I’m not call them “saviors” quite yet, but they are bringing back a sound that I haven’t enjoyed for a while.

mp3: White Arrows- Get Gone (Tribe of Zebras Remix)

Although it is raining outside today I have to realize that not everyone reading the blog will be somewhere rainy so I can’t spend all day listening to ambient, introspective, rainy music.  That realization is probably for the best when there is sunshine-soaked indie-rock to listen to like this White Arrows track freshly remixed by Tribe of Zebras.  ’Get Gone’ is already an infectious and upbeat track on its own, but Tribe of Zebras were able to saturate the song even further with good vibes and summertime happiness.  I could anyone deny a track tagged as ‘RAVEDANCERAVE’?
