Sherpa - I'm Sparklers (2008)

sherpa is a really sweet band. they played at i think the second gig i ever attended, and are (apart from the dhdfd's) the only band i remember from the auckland scene of that era. this might be because they are they are (apart from the dhdfd's) the only band from that scene still active, now with muzai records, the biggest thing (probably ever) in auckland indie music. this album contains one of my favourite songs of all time (11:11) and a load of other nice indie rock/power-pop tunes. they have a new album coming out this year, pretty cool optical illusions, which from what i've heard is really good, so check them out.

    Listen to The Go! Team's track "Huddle Information" track...(in comparison to "11:11")
    Is there a similarity here or am I just dreaming? Love your blog BTW. Thanks for introducing me to new things.

  2. thanks joee. i can see a similarity in percussion style and perhaps a riff, but it ends there for me. i would not be surprised (based on times of release/styles of music) if the go! team were some sort of an influence on sherpa.
