The Rest: John Huston

The Rest - John HustonCanada’s best kept secret The Rest have a brand new record coming out in 2011 and have released this teaser track to the interwebs in advance. They seem to be ditching the Shins-esque sound for a more modern synth-laden layered approach which I’m really digging. I’ll certainly be keeping and ear out for their forthcoming SEESAW next year.

The Rest – Modern Time Travel (Necessities)

I have very little info about this six piece band know as The Rest except that this song comes from their second record which was released earlier this year on Auteur Recordings and they are from generally snowy Canada. At times they have a little bit of a Shins sound to them, but by no means is it a copy. These guys have a distinct sound all their own. I’m digging this new record enough that it’s going to end up in regular rotation in my car CD player. Not an easy feat for most new albums which usually get a cursory listen the iPhone.
