Spain’s The Yellow Melodies have been on my radar for quite some time, thanks to our friend Wally at The Beautiful Music. I think I first fell in love with their tribute album to the Television Personalities back in 2012, but they’re back with a brand new album titled Life. I’ve been jamming it quite a bit the last few weeks, and today you get your chance to get your hands on the LP. If you press play below you’ll find an album filled to the brim with charming melodies and indiepop delights; it’s a complete gem from start to finish. I could go on and on, but who needs my words…you just need the songs below!
This post is about two things really: a great new discovery, and one of my favorite bands, The Television Personalities. I just discovered The Yellow Melodies, a Spanish band in the midst of several EPs paying homage to TTP, this one called How Television Personalities Learned to Love. The original version is one of my favorite tracks, but this cover adds a bit more of a nice jangle, rather than that post-punk art-rock we got from the original act. For me, I’m just now discovering The Yellow Melodies, and I’m grateful, as they’ve got slews of albums for you to enjoy. Also, I just got a reminder of how much I love going back to my Television Personalities catalog. Here’s both songs, so you can compare and fall in love.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/10-14th-Floor.mp3]
