Faunts "Memories of Places We’ve Never Been"

Edmonton’s Faunts fit comfortably in the niche designed by Arts & Crafts acts like Broken Social Scene and Stars. Part groove-based rock soundscapes, part moody pop romanticism, the quartet released their debut album, High Expectations, Low Results, late last year. Though the album may not have received the deserved widespread attention, the band recently signed with Friendly Fire, a New York-based label and plan to have an album out shortly. "Memories of Places We’ve Never Been" is an amiable slice of heartbreaking pop music, filled with sad tinges of electronic programming and vocals bashful enough to make you blush. (www.faunts.com)
