Blouse Is A Band Name

September 13th, 2011

I’ve kinda been digging on this band Blouse from Portland. They’ve, predictably, got the wistful and gloomy early 80′s emo-smear-pop thing going on. I’ve highlighted their labelmates, Soft Metals, a few times, and while the two don’t really sound that much alike, much can be gathered from those different than you. We should be more open-minded!

Below you’ll find a video for their single, “Videotapes”, which uses a bunch of Minolta stock advert footage from decades past. I also added a few mp3′s I found on some of those bigger, more successful music blogs. The self titled album will be out on Captured Tracks November 1st.

    Cool sound. This band proves the well known fact that I missed the 80′s, because this emo-smear pop thing is fresh and exciting to my ears! I love it and the video is hilarious too. Thanks for featuring them!
