[1 April 2013]
Seattle shoegazers Jetman Jet Team may be relative newcomers to the noise-pop scene, but they’re definitely eager to try and find their place in some rarified company. With their debut full-length We Will Live the Space Age (Saint Marie) ready for release in a few weeks, Jetman Jet Team has already received a seal of approval from none other than Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier, who apparently called the band’s music “very beautiful”. Plus, they garnered some attention for covering a track off My Bloody Valentine’s latest almost right after m b v was released. But you could argue that “Albatross”, premiering on PopMatters, is a better tribute to My Bloody Valentine, with its lush melody and bittersweet tone. Just check out “Albatross” and its accompanying video, and you’ll see that Jetman Jet Team is a band that’s starting to make inroads and fast.
Jetman Jet Team’s We Will Live the Space Age is out 16 April on Saint Marie Records.
