They’re also St. Petersburg, Florida kids Kyle Wyss and Orhan Chettri, who meld together syrupy psychedelic pop abstractions as Blind Man’s Colour. The band name, however awkward, is fitting enough: These colors evoked don’t match naturally occurring hues. Instead, they feel like what, yes, a blind man (or woman) might imagine if you tried to explain a coral reef or some neon fish stuck deep in the ocean. You can’t escape talking about watery things with BMC, really. So far they’ve a full-length, Season Dreaming, and an EP called Wooden Blankets EP, which they recorded on 4-track tape during the course of their Senior Year in high school but remain unreleased. No doubt Animal Collective comparisons are in order, but before you start shouting about it: These are the same guys who did the AC covers download Collected Animals, so they’re clearly not shy about the influence. Take a listen to “We’re Treehouse Kids!”:

A couple other tracks:”The Warm Current’s Pull” comes from Season Dreaming.

And the Kanye-approved “Jimmy Dove” from the same:

Finally, here’s a video — aka the “final film for [some dude's] high school digital film imaging class” — with a different version of Wooden’s “Never Hope For Treasure”:

You’ll find more information at their MySpace.

    I like it. And I hear more MGMT then Animal Collective. Personally BMC is catchier than AC, not as inventive, but catchier for sure.

    hmm. yes exactly like animal collective. They jumped on the boat at the perfect time.

  7. I can understand the AC comparisons, but I don’t think they’re biting them THAT badly.
    …this backlash kinda makes me regret naming my project “Tikwid”…

  8. I can’t think of a better time to be an Animal Collective cover band

  9. This must be Deakin’s new band
