Loving Love of Diagrams

October 24, 2009 § Leave a comment


Holy delirious Didjeridoos!! Anybody wants to move to Melbourne with me? Unreliable sources have told me they have an amazing indie scene there, and now I believe them. Meet Love of Diagrams. They play energetic shoegaze, post punk and post rock, with lots of speedy instrumental passages of delicious distortion and a drummer that like to beat. They have a new album out in Australia, called Nowhere Forever, but so far we have to wait for a world wide release. Recently they have adopted influences from dream pop acts like Cocteau Twins, which just makes everything even more unbearable for me. I have gotten my hands on a couple of tracks from the new album, and it completely FLOORES me with delight!

Love of Diagrams – Lookout

Love of Diagrams – Winding

Interestingly, their first album The Target Is You was completely instrumental. Here’s one with some pointy guitars wanting your attention.

Love of Diagrams – What Are You Waiting For?

This gradual progression into vocals and dream pop sounds reminds me of the slower and moodier Danish shoegaze band Diefenbach, though they also took a slighty more complicated turn into tropic surf and a focus on really infecting pop hooks. Here’s a track from their early non-vocal stuff with a nice build up (go listen at their myspace for more recent material).
