03.12.13 — “Falling Down” by Blurred City Lights

If you only listen to one song tonight, make it “Falling Down” by Blurred City Lights (2013, from the Neon Glow EP).

Blurred City Lights is a shoegaze-y/electronic rock band from England. It is, for all practical purposes, a SPC ECO side project. It’s one of many projects of multi-instrumentalist Dean Garcia, who was the brains behind Curve, and is the front of SPC ECO. For this project, he collaborated with Polish multi-instrumentalist/programmer Jarek Leskiewicz, who is an occasional contributor on SPC ECO records. They’re the two official members of the band, but they also get some help from Garcia’s daughter and SPC ECO bandmate Rose Berlin. They also get help from SPC ECO collaborator Perry Pelonero and also from Adriana Leskiewicz. I’m not sure how Jarek and Adriana are related, but I’ll assume that they are.

According to the story I’ve heard, the Blurred City Lights project went from “concept” to having an EP recorded in a matter of something like 10 days.

Tonight’s song is one of the songs where Rose Berlin chipped in with guest vocals. This is that song.

This really reminds me of “El Ray” by The Lassie Foundation.

This one arrived in the mailbag today, and I haven’t had enough time to spend very much time with it, but I really like this song. That’s all I’m going to say about it.

The EP was released last week, and you can get your own digital copy from the bandcamp shop here. I highly recommend it.
