Halloween Alaska

Postby ekahob » Sat May 21, 2005 11:19 pm

<p>A band I discovered last year that you might like is <a href="" target="new">Halloween Alaska </a>. I recommend them if you like early OMD, David Sylvian, The Blue Nile or Prefab Sprout's quiet side. I think the singer sounds a little Paddy McAloon. Their music has appeared on the O.C. but don't hold it against them. They recently reissued their <a href="" target="new">debut CD with extra tracks.</a>
<p><a href="" target="new">Here's a track to download</a> (while it lasts) and you can hear more at <a href="" target="new">their site.</a>
