I love the guitar sound on this track from The Proctors. It’s got this crystalline quality, yet it definitely has faint hints of jangling about it. Still, the song wouldn’t succeed if the vocals didn’t fit right inside the world crafted by the band; they’re not too high, nor too low, in the mix, as if everything is working in unison. The band’s last effort, Everlasting Light, was simply magical, but in this tune, I hear even greater things to come our way soon. No word on exact release date, or title for the record, but you can be assured that indiepop fans are going to fall head over heels for anything the group put out.
Seeing as the fall is full of releases galore, perhaps it’s best if I opted to occasionally highlight a record that might not get tons of attention otherwise. For me, a record I grabbed last week that you should spend all your time with comes from The Proctors. It’s titled Everlasting Light, and it’s just this incredible piece of guitar pop that I can’t escape right now. Every song takes a light-hearted tone, pulling at you emotionally throughout, embedding itself within your soul. I can’t say enough great things about this record, so scour your local record store to see if you can get your hands on it; Shelflife Records unfortunately sold out because it’s that good.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/01-Trouble-With-Forever.mp3]
