When the members of your favorite bands start new bands, do you love those bands as much because they’re legitimately good or because you’re too stupidly loyal? I would generally argue for the former (I play Jets to Brazil just as much as Jawbreaker, and the Kills’ Midnight Boom is as good as Discount’s Half Fiction, albeit different). I mention this because I’m not sure if it’s even worth mentioning that School of Seven Bells guitarist Benjamin Curtis used to be in Secret Machines, an epically spacey rock band whom I adore. You can tell Curtis was in both groups because Bells also has a knack for ambient music, just in a completely different way. Secret Machines sound like a cross between Led Zeppelin and Autolux. On School of Seven Bells' own new album Disconnect from Desire, they sound like Ladytron channeling My Bloody Valentine. Or maybe it’s the other way around.
