Octaves - Greener Pastures
I stumbled upon these guys the other day and was instantly charmed by their list of influences, which included such greats as pg. 99. Their music didn't fail to deliver. Though obviously influenced by such bands as Dillinger, La Dispute, and The Chariot, Octaves still has their own sound, and it's a fantastic sound devoid of pussy singing and tacky sweeps.
From what I can tell, Octaves seems to be yet another tragically unrecognized band. I can see no reason that they don't have more than 304 listeners on last.fm.

I waited too long to listen to this one and now i can't stop playing it, I think I just kept forgetting to check it out once I heard it released. So, in case you missed it, forgot about it like me, or have never even heard of this band before and are checking them out for the first time please enjoy this link I bring to you! Get it while it's hot! Great in time for summer too! I cruise around to this cd all day long. For those who have never heard before also check out the other post on this blog made about Thee Oh Sees.
