Music and Movement and Beat and Happening

I wrote back in March about the Scottish band Music and Movement likening them to MBV and Felt. I finally got a copy of their album This is Music and Movement and while they do have elements of Felt and MVB I'm more reminded of the bands Opal and Beat Happening. Sometimes it's uncanny how the male vocalist channels his inner Calvin Johnson. I still don't know how I feel about the entire record yet but there are parts that I instantly liked and some I'll have to work on.

Their song "I Saw You" is one of the best singles I've heard all year.

Music and Movement - I Saw You
Music and Movement - Body Bags

Here's some Beat Happening from my favorite record of theirs You Turn Me On

Beat Happening - Hey Day
Beat Happening - Tiger Trap
