BLACKMARKET AZ: Just off tour with The Subways, this 4-piece rock group from Lake Havasu, Arizona are touring their new LP "The Elephant in the Room."
"Travis produced by My Bloody Valentine. They're managed by Martin McAloon, formerly of Prefab Sprout, and you can hear echoes of his big brother Paddy's work on their song War is People, which recalls Prefab – not the later, lush Sprout-pop but the early, artfully obtuse, rhythmically tricksy variety with all the time changes and tantalisingly brief surges of melody. In fact, they recall a few great bands in their early incarnations: another track of theirs, Time, has the jerky quality of early Talking Heads before they discovered funk, while Home has the slow-burning quality of early Blue Nile, before they became epically meditative and atmospheric."
