FBF Phones It In: The Loyal Divide

FBF has been pretty silent with the music recommendations since our magical days in Athens, so I was happy when he answered my gmail challenge with The Loyal Divide. Of course, it came as no surprise that they were originally from Columbus, but had moved onto Chicago, FBF's two favorite cities. Most of their shows remain in those two cities, but the guys were in New York for CMJ and competed in Austin's Independent Music World Series last fall.

It's ambient, shoegazer music, which I always need to listen to a few times before really formulating an opinion, so be patient FBF. (Update: this has been playing all Sunday afternoon and I'm adding Lights below, which is my current favorite. Thank you FBF.) Download their self-titled EP for free or simply check it out on MySpace. If you like what you hear, support these guys and vote for them in the first round of Lollapalooza's Last Band Standing.

Listen Up:
The Loyal Divide - Ancestor
The Loyal Divide - Lights
The Loyal Divide - The Tease
