newmusicmonday #5:: The Pretty Faces


The Pretty Faces {website w/player featuring tracks from their recent album, Another Sound}, not to be confused with The Killer's "All the Pretty Faces," is yet another CBC Radio 3 find. Paying homage to the late 1970s, meaning strong guitar work out of a post-punk tradition with well-crafted lyrics, this snowbird band {fleeing for Florida in 2003} rocks, citing Elvis Costello, The Strokes, Elliott Smith as their influences. I'm not the only one to hear a bit of Iggy Pop on some of the songs. Contrasting their older songs from the début album, Another Sound {review} is tighter with less garage and more layers.
