A couple of weeks ago we brought you “Mane,” the playful and infectious new single from Conveyor, a band that always surprises with every new song that they release. Today We Listen For You has premiered the single’s b-side, entitled “Maine.” This new song shows yet another side of this versatile band – in fact it shows a couple. Starting out with an almost ambient introductory segment that features some delicately hit chimes and the guys’ beautiful voices harmonizing wordlessly in union, it’s easy to drift off into the beauty. But, just as you feel you’re about to get swept away the song takes a turn into a delightful acoustic indie-pop gem.
“Maine” is a song that would be a more than worthy single for most bands, so the fact that the song is coming out as a b-side for Conveyor tells you a lot about their talent and confidence. Check out “Maine” below and make sure to order the “Mane”/”Maine” 7″ single (which comes on white vinyl and is limited to 500 copies) from Gold Robot Records right here right now.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
