V4YS Ep Review - Spokes - We Can Make It Out (Counter Records)

Counter Records, the excellent independant rock label from the Ninjatune galaxy will soon release the second album of Spokes, a Mancunian quintet already guilty of a brilliant first LP in 2008 called "People Like People Like You" that is a must-listen to for any fan of soulful post-rock (several extracts here).
Their second album titled "Everyone I Ever Met" should come out next November but the first single "We Can Make It Out" is just out and I have to say it is as good as it gets. Without a doubt my second big indie shock of the year following the fantastic latest Broken Social Scene album (reviewed here).

So put the volume of the below (beautiful) video up and let this refreshing indie gem take the control.



Courtesy of Ninjatune, you can also listen (and/or dwlnd) out the powerful remix from Yppah.
I think I love it even more than the original.


More info on the band's blog.

Counter Records, le sous-label rock de la galaxie Ninjatune va prochainement sortir le second album de "Spokes", jeune groupe post-rock originaire de Manchester, déjà auteur en 2008 d'un sublime opus intitulé "People Like People Like You".
"We Can Make It Out", le premier extrait de ce second album qui s'appellera "Everyone I Ever Met" est disponible depuis quelques jours et c'est une petite merveille. Après le fantastique dernier album de mes chouchous Broken Social Scene, c'est la seconde grosse claque indie que je reçois cette année. Alors en attendant l'album complet, montez le son du lien youtube, fermez les yeux (ou pas vu la qualité du clip) et laisser cet ovni euphorisant prendre le contrôle...
Pour encore plus de sensations checkez le puissant remix de Yppia qui nous est offert par Ninjatune!
