the veils - the troubles of the brain

since their first appearance on tv (back in 2004 on fast forward - one of the best, if not the best ever music show on german tv) i am in love with the veils and especially with finn andrews' wonderful voice. after their highly acclaimed third album "sun gangs" in 2009 they're back with an impressive 6-track ep. they haven't lost any of their subtile energy and their songwriting gets better and better each time they come up with new stuff. the ep is a perfect mix of indie-pop-rock stuff and singer-songwriter material. it's like a black and white short movie filmed in 6 several locations. fantastic stuff there. glad these guys are still around.... better than ever. if you pre-order it now, you'll get a bonus track "iodine and iron" for free.
