What if Simon & Garfunkel had tea and a joint with MGMT, The Descendants, and The KGB? You’d probably be fond of their offspring: Skybox.
The band has released two albums since forming in 2005. The first, Arco Iris (2006), was a bit more on the rocky side. The second, Morning After Cuts, was released January 2010 and has some über-chilled psychedelic-indie-rock-ness to it. Let’s have a listen.
To start things off, here’s my current favorite; a new angle on “Brim Full Of Asha”, called “In A Dream”:
from Arco Iris, here’s “Various Kitchen Utensils”
great for a cruise: “The Silly People Things Say”
and one to say good night: “Gravity Can’t Keep Us Down (Unless We’re On Earth)”
