New School Of Seven Bells – “Connjur”

More goodness from Brooklyn’s School Of Seven Bells. “Connjur” is the second listen offered up from the forthcoming their full-length debut Alpinisms. It’s cut of the same dream-pop blueprint laid out by the album’s fantastic premiere cut “Half Asleep” — silken vocals from On!Air!Library! twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, streaked over grooves and gliding guitars courtesy of ax-man/ex-Secret Machiner Ben Curtis. There’s less pitch-shifted evil in the guitar undertones this time, though; “Connjur” takes off and stays clear and storm free. Journos coined motorik for krautrock’s pulse recalling Autobahn-styled highway driving, and by that logic we can probably find something fitting SVIIB. Flightorik? No, because that’s horrible. But if you come up with a term for a pulse that makes you feel like you’re flying in IMAX, I’ll use it here.
