Currently Listening: Social Studies

While I'm away on vacation, I've scheduled some posts to 
publish automatically. See you all soon!

Another new addition to my collection has been the album Developer from the band Social Studies. Although new to me, Social Studies' Developer is the band's sophomore LP and, from what I've read in reviews, it is a huge advancement over their debut effort. Reminiscent of Florence Welch, front woman Natalia Rogovin's vocals are deep, moody, and slightly haunting. She is backed by strong guitar riffs, subtle synth and beats, and keys that combine in concise arrangements. My top picks from the album are "Terracur" and "Away for the Weekend" (below).
