Shiny, happy pop from Boise, Idaho.
Bright and melodic, they are very similar to The Magic Numbers (and not just because both bands have an overweight bearded guy either).

I have been looking high and low for "The Devil and The Liar" ever since Jason Bentley played it a few times on Metropolis.
As you can tell that song is absolutely killer. Look out for Longwave, I expect big things from them with this record.

Ok, can someone please put me on to Spectrum?
I saw them open for My Bloody Valentine last night and was blown away by this strange, dark blend of shoegaze, electro and goth sounds. I don't know what kind of music that was, but I know that Spectrum is damn good at it.
Anybody got some song suggestions or even better live mp3s?

From the Baltimore Round Robin Site:
WHAT IS A ROUND ROBIN SHOW LIKE?
The format of the show is as follows:
- All the bands set up at the same time along the perimeter of the room with the audience in the center
- Each band does one song per round, no breaks, back to back to back etc., until the show is completed
- There is no headliner or opener, no front row or back of the room
Curated by Dan Deacon, the tour includes bands from Floristree, Wham City, Tarantula Hill, The Bank, Comfort Dome and other Baltimore music homes
Catch this sure to be trashing good time in your city:
(EYES is Eyes Night, a more chill, dreamy experience. FEET is Feet Night, a raucous mix of punk, electro and rock.)
