MADRAS THINGSCANCHANGE (self released, 2012)
First thing I listened in 2012. Still amazed.
Madràs is a band led by brothers Jeevan and Mathew based in Fort Worth, Texas. The band's name is a reference to their hometown Chennai, in India, formerly known as Madras.
Thingscanchange has 3 delicate post punk, bedroom pop driven songs. Less than 10 minutes of calm - almost ambient - tunes and nostalgia. 'Older', the opening track is absolutely gorgeous.
Jeevan and Mathew also play together in the band Fou.
You can find this and other releases on their bandcamp.
