With the digital age of music I’ve realized something.
I totally forget that I like listening to certain bands.
Blame that on the fact that I don’t own any cds.
No dusty cds.
No cds lining my walls and shelves.
No cds stacked dangerously high on my dresser.
Instead I have to rely solely on playlists, social reminders, or tv shows to shock me into ‘oh yeah! i f*cking love that band!‘.
That happened recently with School of Seven Bells. Totally forgot about them.
In 2012 we saw them at Music Fest Northwest in Portland.
Along with this happy dancer and Atlas Genius. And Silver Sun Pickups. I only went to the Pioneer Square shows, but it was a great time.
Thanks to the new release section of Spotify I noticed School of Seven Bells came out with SVIIB, their 4th album. Oddly enough this album was written during their tour break that year.

All I could tell you before reading their wiki page was that I loved all of their albums.
