My Morning Download: “Better Than Ever” by Save The Clocktower ft. Genevieve Schatz of Company Of Thieves

Save The Clocktower with Genevieve Schatz of Company Of Thieves

Chicago’s Save The Clocktower recently released a new album, Through The Glass. The band released their debut album, Carousel, in February 2011. You can download it for free here. Music blogger Dead Journalist calls STC’s music “yacht-popstatic,” a reference to the band’s smooth Seventies vibe and uber-pop melodies. There’s also touches of electronic dance music in the mix resulting in a musical style that brings to mind a cross between Yeasayer and the Atlanta Rhythm Section. On paper, it sounds like an intra-generational musical train wreck; on record though, Save The Clocktower’s new album is an infectious collection of rhythmic indie-pop songs. Below, download “Better Than Ever,” featuring Genevieve Schatz, lead singer of Company Of Thieves. Genevieve appears courtesy of Wind-Up Records.
