Interview With Cape Canaveral
SLOWCORE DANES IN YOUR TYMPANIC MEMBRANES
Ahoy pilgrim. As your swollen loins, salivating chops and unexplainable clumsiness are no doubt indicating, it’s time to crank open your startled peepers and swab out your waxy auricles so we can pipe the sights and sounds from the latest EardrumsPop release into your eyes and ears respectively and respectfully (if you would like us to pipe such things irrespectively and disrespectfully then please fax us your funniest face to the usual number).
This time around, after recent releases from Kids On Bikes and Young Romance, Cape Canaveral are up, purveying their downbeat odes to broken hearts in their inimitable lo-fi, saturated and kaleidoscopic manner. Influenced by classic indie bands like The Go-Betweens, as well as more recent acts like Bright Eyes and The Walkmen, Cape Canaveral have been dazzling audiences around Copenhagen for several years now, having formed there in the long, sticky summer of 2010.
For this EardrumsPop release (which follows the usual template of giving you two original songs, a covered track, a downloadable booklet of this intraview and some other cool artwork for the inflation-eschewing price of absolutely nothing) the band have recorded a version of Oblivious by Galaxie 500 because they love the punkish philosophy that lies behind the band’s music. You can flip austerity the middle digit and treat your cerebral cortex to an early birthday present by downloading another track from the package – the band’s own composition, Crazy Love – here, before grabbing the full package over at EardrumsPop. Don’t forget to say takk.
