School of Seven Bells – new album soon & two NYC shows
School of Seven Bells @ MHOW/CMJ 2009 (more by Vincent Cornelli)
The shoegaze trio has a new record due this spring on Vagrant Records.
SSB's Alejandra Deheza: I love Alpinisms, but I definitely think [the new album] is a way better record. I mean, I hope. It's just a different time and the lyrics come from a different place, and so do the songs, just like the music. It seems very different to me. The one thing that is in common with the other record is it's all very sing-able. It's not a noise record or anything.
Under the Radar: Do you feel the tone of the album is different?
Alejandra: Yes. I don't want to generalize it too much. It comes from a darker place, but darker doesn't have to be negative. It comes from a different place of writing than the first record. The album title is Disconnect From Desire.
