Photos and Review of School of Seven Bells, The xx, and DJ Mike Wolf at South Street Seaport 8/14 by Eric Vilas-Boas
School of Seven Bells did not disappoint last night

School of Seven Bells did not disappoint on Friday night

PREVIEW: Download School of Seven Bells’ “Face to Face on High Places” MP3
PREVIOUS COVERAGE: Black Moth Super Rainbow, Blank Dogs, and Dan Friel at the Seaport; Pains of Being Pure at Heart, ZAZA, and Ribbons at the Seaport

From everything we’ve come to expect from River to River, there were no surprises at their last show at the lovely South Street Seaport. It was a beautiful night for a concert and while the crowd wasn’t nearly as animated as they were the week before at Casiokids or during Black Moth Super Rainbow’s incredible set, both The xx and School of Seven Bells made up for it with dreamier live acts. Opening DJ Mike Wolf? Not so much

Apart from some amusing Cure, Psychocandy, and other ‘80s throwbacks set against the modern rock tracks, overall Mike Wolf’s mixing was pretty uninspiring, with the crowd sitting through most of it. Dan Friel a few weeks ago was a far more impressive opener, but then, we can’t all be awesome enough for crowd members to tambourine for us. Continue reading

Memories 3: M83 and School of Seven Bells by Tuan Le

M83 and School of Seven Bells played Saturday night in Philadelphia at the Starlight Ballroom, putting on one of the best shows I’ve been to this year.  I snapped some photos for you guys, albeit on my crappy super-zoom compact from about 15 ft away instead of a DSLR from 3 ft away.  That makes for really grainy pictures.

School of Seven Bells played a fairly short set, which was quite unfortunate, but they are amazing.


M83 literally floored one girl (she fainted) because they were so good.

Leak of the Week 1: School of Seven Bells – Alpinisms by Tuan Le

Last night, the much-awaited School of Seven Bells LP, Alpinisms, from former Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis and identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza of On! Air! Library! leaked on to the internet!  A hypnotic mix of shoegaze, dream-pop and electronic, SVIIB should satisfy those interested in Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth and M83, with whom SVIIB are touring with this November.  Standout tracks include “Face to Face on High Places,” “Connjur” and “Chain.”   The voices of the Deheza twins are simply magical, and the intricacies of each song create a full, strong sound that is undeniably breathtaking.

This could be my favorite album so far in 2008.

Alpinisms is due legally through Ghostly International on October 28, 2008.
