Kite Flying Society

Have you heard Kite Flying Society yet? If you like Rogue Wave, The Shins, Fruit Bats, and the like these guys will be right up your alley. If you're a fan of indie pop, you need to check them out. Seriously. I don't think there's an act whose future (and first) release I'm more looking forward to at the moment. I posted on them back in February, but C&T's audience has grown enough in the time since that I think they deserve another go.

KFS is a seven-piece act out of San Diego (I'll spare you the Anchorman joke this time), and my understanding is that they haven't yet ventured far from their home base. I learned of them through the wonderful, and I want to make sure others learn about them too. They're perfect music for this beautiful day here in Atlanta. Gotta love that Rushmore-inspired moniker as well. Give these demos a listen:

Kite Flying Society - 6000 Shipwrecks
Kite Flying Society - Groundflower
Kite Flying Society - Love & Seagulls
Kite Flying Society - Esthetes are Easy

They don't have any releases yet, but they're hard at work recording material. For now, you should go pay them a visit on MySpace. Be their friend, let 'em borrow your bike, share a milkshake with them.

Feel free to share your thoughts. I've been surprised at the drop-off in comments lately. Was it something I said? Have a good one, y'all.

Good find! I also hadn't heard of the site "IndiePages." Thanks for both.

You're quite welcome, Culley.

IndiePages is great to find what's going on with small labels, and they often have very good stuff on their demos page. That's where 3 of these 4 tracks originally came from.

Oh Rich, I'm sorry. I'm usually good about commenting if I download something. My brain is fried from finals week; maybe other people are in similar situations?

Anyway, I'll try to be more conscientious in the future, as your blog is one of my favorites!

Hehe. It's alright Kate, you're forgiven. ;)

The Rogue Wave/Shins/Fruit Bats comparision is rather appropriate. Probably more toward the Shins side of things to my ears. I'll have to check them out when they play out here in L.A. in August. Thanks!
