As mentioned in a post of a The xx last week or so, CMJ brought swarms of rock-and-roll locusts into NYC for a week of devastation and inebriation. I managed to miss most of the brunt of it but did catch three bands which included The xx out of London, Brooklyn’s School of Seven Bells (or SVIIB in alpha ‘Rome-eric’ notation) and lastly a band called Bloodgang from Iceland in what turned out to be a very small but fruitful dabble into CMJ 2009.
SVIIB is a female fronted psychedelic neo shoe-gaze type outfit. This track is from CMJ 2009 and was introduced as a new one. This track bodes well for future releases, since it was among the best they played that night.[audio: http://www.thesoundofindie.com/archive/2009/20091210/SOSB-UnknownTrack.mp3|titles=Unknown Track (Live)|artists=School of Seven Bells]
