The World Doesn't Need You Now

Postal Blue is a three piece twee outfit from Brazil, except they sound very European, very Belle and Sebastian. The vocals sound very similar to Stuart's, the guitars would fit right in anywhere on If You're Feeling Sinister, the sparse snare and cymbal drumming even echos Belle and Sebastian. I'm not going to hold it against them though, because their music is also very much their own and it's been keeping me entertained all morning.

Pop Matters said, "The joy and beauty that Postal Blue finds in its exploration of, well, "blue" moods elevates this album from what a Nick Hornby character would deride as "sad bastard music". The ideal listener for Postal Blue's compositions is the same type of person described in "Rainy Day": those who find a sense of joy in the depressing and a sense of depression in the joyful"

Postal Blue's new Ep Road To Hapiness was released back in February on Humblebee Recordings, you can order it HERE.
