discovered the church

slider-thechurch-live

thanks to pandora* / the church,an aussie alt rock band from the 80s who sometimes sounds like depeche mode, sometimes like a young r.e.m. \ “the church radio” on pandora brings together for me the right combination of feel and sound from that era, a much better amalgam than “the cure radio” or “the joy division radio”

they widely licensed their only top 40 u.s. hit “under the milky way” / i’d never heard it before nor did it sound familiar, maybe its commercial popularity stayed down under

* its somewhat portly but attractive font is mrs. eaves small caps
