also out this week...


the full length album by the Love of Diagrams "Mosaic."
I love this album! Ever since I first heard their ep a couple of months ago, I have been obsessed. And patiently waiting for the release of the full length. While this is their first album out in the US, they have one previous in their native Australia, "The Target is You."  But it is all about Mosaic.

Love of Diagrams have been around since 2001, but are finally making their way to a US audience. The band is made up of two awesome ladies, Monika Fikerle and Antonia Sellbach, and one dude, Luke Horton. I don't know what it is, but I love bands with both dudes and ladies singing back and forth at each other. It just makes the songs more interesting by combining two different perspectives.

You can easily mistake them for a late 70s/early 80s no wave band. They have the post punk sound of similar bands like Erase Errata. Bands like these often do not hide their influences, it seems to have gotten to a point where bands are torn apart for being too obvious with their influences. But I really think it has almost reached a point where everything has been done. Every band name has been taken and every sound reinvented. But I don't really care about any of this.

Love of Diagrams simply makes me wanna dance and gets me more excited than most bands have the ability to do. It 's the kind of album I want to start over before it's even finished the first time. They have a great raw energy on this album, similar to early Siouxsie albums. You seriously need to go check out this album. You can always start with the ep, if you a scared to commit to an entire album.
Here is a video if you need some more convincing....
