Hailing from Northampton MA, NYC UFOS packs a great polished sounding sound for a band with less than 2k views on MySpace and I think they deserve some hype and listens from our readers.

Their sound is a mix of indie, some hazy dream pop, and a little bit of psychedelic noises. For a demo tape, this is better than some peoples debut albums. The only critical comment I might make is that some tracks I get lost in the hazy noise and can’t hear the lyrics so much, mainly in the demo tracks. It might just be that those were recorded differently. Definitely give them a chance though, if this is their demo, who knows that they have in store in the future.

  • Oh, good ol’ Northampton. I’ve spent quite a few bored days up there… I wonder if any of my friends know these guys.

    As for the music, cool stuff. I almost get the sense that the shoegazing is intentional and that that might correspond to the lo-fi haze you’re hearing.

    Oh, and also… I got tired of your banner not linking back to your home page, so I decided to make you this even less useful one :D. http://i37.tinypic.com/23ii49v.jpg

    • Not all their tracks are the same haziness, just the demo ones. The others sound pretty clean. Hahaha, I’m still on wordpress.com so I can’t seem to get the stupid banner to not link back to the homepage LOL. the bold title does though.
