Sore Eyelids - s/t

Take Suis La Lune's frantic, fuzzed out punk/skram aesthetic, mix it with some mid mid 90's emo sadness like the Pine or Evergreen, and add just a bit of mopey brit-pop (dare I say Smith's-esque....boy I'm going to take heat for that one....) vocals and you have Sore Eyelids. The vocals are clean (Why is that a bad word?), but dreamy and far off in the distance, the bass is grooving, and the guitars are frantic, hurried and fantastic. I love this record. Took me a few listens, but it grew on me like crazy! (I should also mention that my pal Jord showed me this...thanks!!!)
