The Leafs are from Victoria Australia , they are Michael Pulsford on guitar and Gus Kemp on drums, both sing.
After years of playing in sprawling post-rock bands, the members of Melbourne duo The Leafs were tired of only playing long instrumental songs and started banging out stripped-down inter-dimensional pop miniatures – best measured in seconds rather than minutes – on a 2-drum kit and a throwaway guitar with all the strings tuned to the same note. Fun, intense and beautiful, their debut EP ‘Space Elevator’ combines classic pop melody, the cubist screams and dumb-in-the-head rock of the early Pixies, and the poetry of 60s outsiders like Nick Drake.
This eight song EP called Space Elevator are decidedly a quiet , sometimes noisy, awesome garage lo-fi.
They are giving it to us for FREE on their bandcamp page, i can`t insert the widget of bandcamp on wordpress , sorry…
