Fauna - Pretty 7"

This one is an experimental 49 cents 7" and amazingly they sounded like Moose. Very few bands sounds like old school shoegazers that's why this record really caught my attention. The guy who probably sold the Singapore Sling must have sold this one too as both records have similar style although completely different in terms of creativity. By the way I will be gradually transferring my blog site to a different domain. The content would not be music specific but will cater my interests in general. I have posted some pictures from my droid and written some short journals already. Here's the link: Comments are highly appreciated!

They are not from Singapore at all, these guys are from Iceland. I believe they got their name from a type of cocktail drink, I could be wrong. This particular song reminds me so much of JAMC's Blues From A Gun.
