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.[audio: http://www.thesoundofindie.com/archive/2009/20090716/TheRest-ModernTimeTravel(Necessities).mp3|titles=Modern Time Travel (Necessities)|artists=The Rest]
As regular readers of TSOI have noticed, there haven't been any updates to this site in quite some time, but thanks to a handful of Hi-8 tapes that were sitting around for 7 years, The Sound Of Indie now has a YouTube channel!
