[mp3] Gem Club: "Breakers"
Gem Club's 6 track Acid and Everything, was amazing. It was haunted, sad and beautifully well written. So good it almost hurt. In our lust for bright sunny Brazilian tunes, the fantastic news that this talented group (Christopher Barnes and his collaborators, cellist Kristen Drymala, and vocalist Ieva Berberian) had signed a solid label deal and announced their debut, slipped by in the unrelenting glut of press releases. While searching our inbox for another band (the excellent I Break Horses) we stumbled upon this press release, and we're so glad we did.
As soon as the above track "Breakers" finished, we replayed it, and we're not the repeating type. It's that good. After the promise of their EP, and this new song, we're sincerely hoping that Breakers (September 27 Hardly Art) is in our top albums of the year list.
