Published Mar 03, 2009Seeing as I've already spent time this year raving about Dum Dum Girls and Blank Dogs, I felt it was appropriate to extend my feverish adulation to the Mayfair Set, which is a collaborative effort between the two hotly tipped one-person bands.
Joining forces for a seven-inch due for release on Captured Tracks, the press shy team of Dee and Mike S. don't throw any curve-balls - the Mayfair Set sound exactly as you'd expect them to: rackety lo-fi production, bare bones instrumentation, a whole lot of sharp, piercing jangle, bubbling synths and back and forth turns giving their signature vocals.
Of course, this release will be very limited, so interested collectors should start harassing the label at [email protected], just to be safe.
