Rescue: "Breaking My Own Heart"

Rescue demonstrate the ice hockey play made famous by The Mighty Ducks

Hailing from Detroit, the violin toting five piece known as Rescue have finally found a temporary home for their debut record, Paranoid. Though they're not "officially" releasing the album, Michigan's Suburban Sprawl Music will be doing a limited edition pressing of Paranoid which will all be hand-numbered. Rescue play very dense songs with dashes of psychadelia, male/female harmonies, and complex instrumental breakdowns scattered about. There is currently no solid date on when Paranoid will see a release, but when that time comes you'll be able to pick it up from Suburban Sprawl Music or at a show. Speaking of shows, look below the MP3 for October dates with Skatterbrain favs Thunderbirds Are Now!

[MP3]: Rescue :: Breaking My Own Heart (Recommended!)
The song opens, full band, in an almost wall of sound dirge led mostly by a fiercly stomping piano. About halfway through the song, the instruments take a step back, allowing a small choir of voices to singing together "until you forget" over and over. Following a short break comes a distorted guitar solo, a spastic synth freakout, a drum breakdown, and then, finally, you get a chance to breathe.

I can only imagine that a show with these guys and Thunderbirds Are Now! has like, a 200% chance of breaking into one gigantic dance party. Make sure you don't miss the party.
