Diskant (U.K.)

Dakota Suite / Idaho 7"

Both sides remind me of Red House Painters, with very well-played and very well-recorded sad music. Dakota Suite keep things quiet, including a heartbreaking piano number, 'Narcolepsy Lake'. Idaho get a bit more electrified, feedback-y and pissed-off sounding, and bring to mind Jeff Buckley.
