Comanechi release their very good debut album, ‘Crime Of Love’, on 30 Nov via Merok Records – the label famed for discovering the likes of Klaxons and Crystal Castles. Packed full of blistering garage rock songs, the album was, it has been claimed, completed after the band (singer/drummer Akiko Matsuura and guitarist Simon Petrovitch) snuck into a studio being used by Chris De Burgh one weekend while no one was looking and recorded the last three tracks.
If you want an idea of what it might sound like, then this remix of one of the stand-out tracks, ‘Close Enough To Kiss’, will not help you at all. It is a beautiful slice of mildly dubby electronica, though, so you should listen to it anyway.
Check out the Merok Records blog to download it (and also link through to the band’s MySpace page, where you can hear the original):
