Fé - "Time"
The debut single from these English chaps has only one drawback: it sets the bar pretty high for anything that's coming down the pipe. "Time" is one of those rare songs that can blend electronic drum kits and effects with classic piano and guitar sounds without having the two step on each others toes. They also manage to throw in some found sounds—clanks and crashes that could be made in the kitchen but are artfully arranged here to become part of the larger fabric. If you happen to be in London, check out their first ever live show on 11/9/13 at the Old Blue Last. - Crax
