Listen To This: The New Sound Machine

| Filed under: Listen To This

We're thrilled and proud that one of our favorite new bands, The Postmarks, are from our hometown of Miami. Especially because their music is as un-Miami as it gets!

You'd expect to hear The Postmarks in a really cool French film.

Their sound is pretty pop with a retro feel.

The Postmarks are like a really good glass of wine, rich and sweet and enjoyed in small sips throughout a long and lovely dinner.

Enjoy three lush songs below, Let Go, Weather The Weather and Goodbye. Their songs are so good, we can't just single ONE out.

Then CLICK HERE to listen to some other sublime music from The Postmarks.

    You might as well call this website 'Perez thinks he can pick good music, but he cant'. Your taste in music sucks badly, almost as you similes…

    Very strange sound. The repetitive sound and cadence tempo in each song makes it sound too similar. It's a good beginning, however. They have potential. I'll probably like them more after I stay awake for three days and sniff freon from my AC unit.

    this sounds like every other band/song on KCRW. nothing at all special about them. sorry perez.

    It's the little girl/kitten voice variety of "indie". I can't take it and it's hardly original. I guess it's not the worst music ever but, similar to what another poster wrote, I'd have to be tripping pretty hard to find it even tolerable. Also, I too think you should Stop with the music recomendations. You're taste is highly questionable. I guess you try though. That counts for something.

    I'm loving this. I'll buy thier CD this week but I doubt they'll get much play since they don't sound like the thousands of poptart clones currently polluting the airwaves.

    They sound like SHIT!!! I think The Skid Marks would be a better band name for them!

    ooooo, Perez!!!! I'm impressed, I fucking ADORE The Postmarks. The 2 bands in their top friends, IVY and BROOKVILLE are amazing too!!!

    Yay, i'm so pleased you picked them out…now just fucking check out BLONDFIRE and I'll die a happy man.

    i love their music but i saw them in concert at studio a in miami and they girl put me to sleep. no stage presence whatsoever. i know the music is very chill but when i saw the submarines which have a similar style they kept the crowd going.

    They are a complete carbon copy of Au Revoir Simone. Seriously, I wouldn't even be able to distinguish one difference between them and The Postmarks. So if you like this, check out Au Revoir Simone, who are very similar but more original.

    Are you being paid for mentioning their name 4 times?

    Most contemporary bandnames starting with 'The ..' are lame, in my opinion.

    i dont know why people are being negative about this band i like it.. everybody's taste is different so don't say people can't pick music..

    re: shannon: while one of the guys lived briefly in delray he moved back to ft. laud over a year ago. the girl lives in boca and the other dude lives/works part time in miami/ft. lauderdale. he was in the miami alternative band 23 which also had dj ursula 1000 in it. worst case maybe a south florida band?

  48. eduardo says – reply to this


    48

    besides why does location matter if they are bringing good attention to an area? typical south florida, whether sports or entertainment, people are never there to support you locally and the minute some good stuff happens all the haters show up. fun stuff!

    Is it just me or are these tunes just aching to be on a future hit movie soundtrack?

    53

    jeez…i saw them at studio a as well and i thought they were awesome. their music is more in your face live then on the album. yes, the singer is reserved but it suits the noise going on around her. kinda like the chick from mazzy star. not every singer needs to be gwen stefani running around doing jumping jacks on stage.
