Myspace // "Apples and Pears" [mp3]
I was fooling around on Elle Milano's Myspace page the other day when I stumbled upon Stop! Motion in their top 16 or whatever. While this York/Leeds outfit isn't breaking any new ground, the band has a not too finely polished blend of sharp guitars, precise drumming and anthemic vocals. It's a sound that doesn't sound good with too much studio trickery, and these guys obviously know what they're doing. Not only do Elle Milano know how to write some great tunes, they know how to pick quality bands.
