Tiny Time Pills & a Poke in the Ribs

Today on Echoes it’s new music from Elbow & The Capsules

TakeOffElbow is the English band that takes 80s new wave stylings and a bit of Peter Gabriel narrative drama and updates them into their own, often moody sound.  Their new album is The Take Off and Landing of Everything.   

LongGoodbyeThe Capsules are a dreampop band but with a harder edge, from Lawrence, Kansas.  Their new album is The Long Goodbye and the song, “Super Symmetry” is one of those tunes I can get out of my head with it’s minimal sequencer, sawtooth grind and Julie Shields‘ chilled, ice queen delivery.

 Here’s the rest of today’s show
