Autumns find their home on one of my favorite micro-labels, CF Records; it’s home to Sea Pinks, if that says anything. The Derry band have this dark post-punk, though they don’t seem entirely infatuated with your typical swirl of reverb and atmospherics. The vocals do seem to be hidden beneath the mix, in an intoxicating manner that creates a brooding sensation; it gives several of the tunes an old-school feeling you’re like to enjoy. If I had to pick a favorite from the 4 songs presented below, I think the opening number “Je Vous Etre” is definitely the stunner, though the rest all has something to offer.
I always try and keep my eye on a few certain labels, knowing they’ll always have something interesting up their sleeve, which is precisely the case for CF Records. They’ve just signed up with Ireland’s Autumns to release the four song Blonde EP, which seems to me to be a collection of delightfully jangling noise pop tracks. This single doesn’t go too far into the realm of the band’s noisier side, but you can hear those chugging jangling guitars pushing through quickly. Their EP will be released in February, so keep an eye out for this one!
