DOWNLOAD: The Ice Choir - Two Rings
People from the '80s sure did sound mean. But I guess that meanness can sometimes come in handy. Would I, for instance, have had to sit through so many boring Friday night dinner parties if I could have repelled the advances of idiots and dullards by hitting them with ice blasts of frozen-hearted synthpop? Kurt Feldman, the guy behind The Ice Choir, also drums for The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, AKA the nicest guys in music ever. So who knows, maybe Kurt got tired of spooning creme brulee into his mouth and decided to take action. "Two Rings" – out November 15 through Shelflife, and highly reminiscent of New Order – certainly works for me as idiot repellent.
