Let me start off by saying, I like the Postelles. Or should I say, liked the Postelles. Don't get me wrong, I still love their music, but when a press release comes out telling me their debut record just released today via +1 Records, I am left confused. Didn't that record come out a year ago on Capitol? What happened? There wasn't a radio play and I think they got dropped.
Those of us in the industry know records are full of fits and starts. Unfortunately for the Postelles, they fell victim to what feels like a failed first push. After a video for their killer song,"White Night" surfaced along with some buzz in the UK, the blog world, including Stark began to take notice a bit. Then after awhile, radio silence. Maybe the push never happened and we just imagined it, but regardless, The Postelles have something good here in their debut produced by Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes. Keep a clear eye. Catch em tonight or tomorrow night at the Mercury Lounge!
