I am remote blogging so this one is going to be quick.

Montreal’s The Dears make orchestral-pop that has an epic scale. It is almost operatic. This, my friends, is powerful stuff. These tracks are from their BBC6 Lamacq in the City concert in Cambridge and their 2004 studio session with KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
Look out for a new album, titled “Gang of Losers”, due out in August.
