2 samplings of Earmilk, from 2 FRESH new bands.
Summer Camp is Singer/Songwriter Jeremy Warmsley and Journalist/Writer Elizabeth Sankey. At their formation, they were thought to be a Pop group made up of 7 friends from Sweden. Makes sense - The band casually references the '80's (Heathers, John Hughes, Sixteen Candles) and uses old, cheesy pictures as their artwork/promo pics.
* BONUS, Check out their photo- blog of swiped retro snapshots: http://summercampband.blogspot.com/
Broken Bells is James Meecer (The Shins) and Danger Mouse ("Grey Album," The Black Keys, DANGER DOOM, Gorillaz, Beck). They are one hell of a (somewhat odd) duo! James and Brian met while working on a track for the Sparklehorse/Danger Mouse collaborative project, "Dark Night of the Soul." The Broken Bells album really came out of nowhere, and is one of the best set of songs I've heard in a while.
* BONUS 2, Create your own 3-D version of the "October" video-single: http://www.brokenbells.com/october/
So, grab a copy of Summer Camp's Young EP, along with Broken Bells' Self-Titled Full-Length!
