Listen to the lovely, warm, ambient sound of July Skies.
they sound much like Jeniferever, July Skies are more quiet/restrained and their lyrics are steeped in Englishness. I would say that Slowdive and Piano Magic are closest in comparison.
but like Piano Magic, I should try then...
Say hi to July Skies singer dude from me. :)
especially if the Sleeping Years are playing the same gig...
I don't see the Piano Magic comparison in the slightest though. Although I haven't heard them on record, only seen them live. The woman is nice in that band. She gave me cake.
jeniferever, except maybe in the guitar tones. JS belong to that ghostly English school of music with Epic45, Hood, Mordant Music and the Ghost Box label (thematically) and echo Bark Psychosis, Disco Inferno and Slowdive (Pygmalion era) musically.
July Skies is basically one man: Anthony Harding, and he used to be Avrocar, who Radiohead cited as an influence on Kid A (Avrocar was ambientish synthy stuff what woulda been right at home on Kranky).
July Skies is some of the same people I think. Or something. Saw them at the Luminaire a while back, they were excellent.
it's because Epic45 guys help out Anthony when it comes to doing live shows.
epic 45 loads of money through paypal for their cds and they never sent them to me. they just stopped replying to my emails :(
so i don't listen to them anymore.
i feel sure they would never do that on purpose, they are really nice lads. i know they had massive web problems at some point, maybe the mail went astray?
i saw gallo live and it was one of the worst things i have ever seen
july skies were brilliant though, in the sigur ros / jeniferever way
