one record i keep ignoring, for some reason i am really not a fan of colorful album artwork with the exception of course of the stone roses' artwork. i go mostly for the black and white covers of most indie bands if i' am experimenting, new wave and synth bands usually have their own faces on the cover of their albums. madchester bands would have silhouette of their images on covers while post punk prefers a landscape of something or an unsual place with an unusual settings i don't know if i'm making sense here. anyway this month's featured artist were an american new wave band that sounds somewhat different than most, a four piece act from maryland that really is nothing more but an original. just ignore the first sixteen seconds of the song, and trust me you will enjoy the rest .
