Ghostly Signs School of Seven Bells
- Words: Maverick Newberry
Formed just last year, the Brooklyn-based trio of Benjamin Curtis and twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza got straight to work releasing 7"s and tracks full of off-kilter rhythms, fractured guitars, and scattered electronics. One can't really label this band as dance music or rock music, but it's fine music for the headphones at any rate. The group now prepares to release its full-length, Alpinisms, October 28, on the aforementioned home of the ghost logo.
No word yet on the album's tracklisting, but stifle your disappointment over that fact by checking out the forthcoming 7"/digial single, "Half Asleep/Caldo," out on September 16.
In November, SSB will hit the road with M83.
