Saigon Blue Rain: What I Don't See

What I Don't See cover art
Once upon a time, we featured a fabulous synthpop/post-punk duo from France named Stupid Bitch Reject. The duo then went away and we heard nothing. Now they are back, with a new name, Saigon Blue Rain, and an exceptional "debut" album What I Don't See. The album is dark, heavy and ethereal. With soaring vocals, virtuoso guitar and synths and songs that stand as post-punk anthems. In a year that has seen an abundance of fine emerging music, Saigon Blue Rain stand out as hands above the rest. Similar in vein to bands like Phantogram, but will an intensity that the former lacks.
