Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s-Skeleton Key
I first discovered this band in early 2007, and I absolutely love them. I heard this track on the radio, and it got me curious enough to go and buy their first album, “The Dust of Retreat” and woof! am I glad I did. The album is an actual album, rather than just a collection of songs, and that by itself is refreshing and rare these days. The fact that all the songs are really gorgeous and edgy pop music is icing on the cake.
It’s easy to see how the 7 piece “cinematic chamber pop” ensemble from Indianapolis easily could have fallen into the seductive trap of indie hipsterism, but they managed to avoid it and create really beautiful music together, and I thank them for it.
