Here’s the first track from Winnipeg’s Departures. Labelled as “post-punk” I ignored it for a while. But when I gave it a listen I found that it had indie-rock tendencies and interesting layers. It sort of reminded me of Cloud Nothings in their ability to be abrasive and atmospheric at the same time. Their debut album Still and Moving Lines will be out October 2nd, 2012.
