GREAT NEW MUSIC: Citified "The Meeting After the Meeting"

After talking to Ramon from Jupiter Watts after their show about this band, I realized that I hadn't posted about them since I received their EP, "The Meeting After the Meeting", nearly four months ago...better late than never, right? The delay was certainly not due to any lack of interest in this album. Hell, it's one of the better albums I've been sent so far this year. Not sure what happened, but I'm damn sure gonna tout about now. Dreamy indie-pop/rock that's a little too driving to be shoe-horned into shoe-gaze, but yet it seems to drip enough shoe-gazy reverb & decay to see that MBV and The Cure are definitely amongst their music collection. There is absolutely no filler in this concise & haunting seven song EP, every song as repeatable as the previous one. Needless to say is highly recommended.

"The Meeting After the Meeting" is out now via the great Eskimo Kiss Records.
