THIS IS APACHE BEAT
I don't write about rock music often on this blog, but I do feel I need to highlight a track from Brooklyn-based Apache Beat. My good friend and EIC of The Pop Manifesto, Ilirjana Alushaj, is the front woman, and I think they have a tremendous amount of potential. Plus, they get bonus points for the esoteric NEU! reference that is their name. This is a rough demo that Ilirjana says has changed slightly in terms of lyrics, but you get the idea. As for forthcoming output, "Tropics" is being released as a 7" in April with the b-side remixed by Tacteel of TTC/Institubes fame on Summer Lovers Unlimited. Find out about the band via their Myspace page.
