We talk about a lot of things, and we're always looking for the next great artist/band, but talent seems to be disappearing. Listeners are always trying to define what's important.  Things are shifting; does this band seem like "now?"  Are they good at rehashing a genre from the past?  Do they have their own genre, ____wave?  Do they have a great backstory?  Do they look cool? These questions seem like jokes, but look around.  Sadly enough, it's what most people who write about music are talking about.  

With Miracles of Modern Science you get everything that's important in just one track.  This is an amazingly talented band that somehow bends classical instruments like the violin and cello to craft intelligent pop/rock songs. Now, they're following up their wonderful LP Dog Year, with a new six track EP, MEEMS.  The first sample, "The Singularity," is an explosive track that dips and rises from moment to moment, featuring an exuberant violin that at one point seems like it's going to whirl away at lightning speed, only to shift into something more restrained and dramatic.  Passionate vocals, a tightly composed song, and musicianship that is hard to rival makes "The Singularity" a song for everyone.  With just two hundred copies of this EP being put on limited, hand numbered/hand printed album cover wax with an etched b-side... this is a must own for record collectors everywhere.
