+/- (Plus/Minus) – Let’s Build A Fire


On October 24, +/- (Plus/Minus) will release their latest album, “Let’s Build a Fire” and my prediction is an early comparison to the Arcade Fire. The resemblance is there, but the sound may be too “poppy” for the Pitchfork sect. Still, this release from the New York based band is solid from start to finish.

There are many different styles present and no two songs sound alike. When their songs come up on shuffle, I struggle to figure out the artist without looking. One of the songs posted below (Leap Year) came up randomly in my car this afternoon and I almost rear-ended the car in front of me while looking to see who sang it.

Take a listen, but leave your eyes on the road.

  2. End years top ten nominee number one. Leap Year is like all their songs, leap years behind everything that has been made but still leap years ahead. Is this the record Mercury Rev (or fill in your favourite 199x american indie band) forgot to produce? Steal the blue prints, Fade out, go back and forth. This is *the* record that make you realize cars need headphones.
