We, the contributors, love and support well-made music and make every effort to support the artists we love by purchasing their work (it is our policy only to post what we own). Through this site, we're simply trying to share good music with others who will also hopefully continue to support these artists. We encourage everyone to purchase music and concert tickets for the artists you feel merit your hard earned dollars. Also, if you own the copyright to one of these songs and would like a song removed, please let us know.
Helvetia is about to tour with Built to Spill, which is a perfect pairing. Both bands excel in winding but cohesive songs, and they share vocal styles that waver without going out of tune. They’re bands that love some good dissonance, especially if the dissonance only emphasizes the more melodic parts of the song. It’s organized chaos.
This song is from Helvetia’s new album Nothing In Rambling, out September 11 on Joyful Noise Recordings. It was recorded entirely on a Teac 8-track, and the hissy, overblown quality of this song works entirely in its favor.
