Moscow Olympics

Just a quick post real quick before I run off to class, but I just had to mention this! Sweden's Fraction Discs label has just announced they will be releasing the debut 7" from the very excellent Philippine dreampop band Moscow Olympics! Moscow Olympics take the swirling, ringing guitars of late 80s shoegaze and mix it with the sweet melodies of Sarah Records-era indiepop, creating a fantastic dreampop sound that you would swear Bobby Wratten had a hand in. The single will feature the amazing track, "Still" on the a-side and previously unheard track, "Talk Like This" on the b-side. I've never mentioned the band before because I've got no songs to post for you, but I urge you to go over their myspace and listen to the demos they have up. Then I think you'll realize why I'm so excited!

Listen to Moscow Olympics on MySpace!

The black button in the picture reads something like "MOSKVD" in faux Russian. Sheesh! How blatantly uncool can you get? It's MOCKBA if you want to do the LATIN LETTERS IN CAPS thing, or Москва in Cyrillic.
