Back in ’07, Rolling Stone, Spin and Pitchfork hailed the Postmarks debut album as one of the most promising of the year. While the public at large may have missed the proclamation, steady touring and a follow-up album of winsome covers, helped to build the South Florida-based band a small but loyal group of fans. Those ranks are due to swell on the strength of the band’s second full-length release of originals, Memoirs At The End Of The World, which has again garnered praise from Pitchfork. The band’s lead singer Tim Yehezkely says they looked to classic cinema soundtracks for inspiration and it shows: all sweeping orchestrations, blaring horns and hard-driving snare, every other track sounds like it was jacked straight from the (James Bond composer) John Barry songbook. That’s not a bad thing. The band blends 70s Detroit soul, French New Wave, and cinephilia into its own clever and somehow current version of indie pop: a soundtrack for your life … if your part-time job is secret agent.
