Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Much in the same vein as Rafter, but a little more structured, is Brazil's Mini People in Coney Island. Nara Dreamland is a pastiche of electro-pop, thick with synthesizers and synthetic beats. What comes out is a mix of the sounds of bands like Hot Chip, Postal Service, Helio Sequence, and Mates of State, creating gentle pop songs filled with whirs and beeps while the heavily altered vocals drift throughout the electronic noise.

"Dear World" captures Mini People in Coney Island's etherial sound to a tee, generating a restrained electronic "ballad" much like the Go Find has mastered. Think of it like early Death Cab for Cutie set to synthesizers rather than guitars. (Oh yes, and you can download the album for free from their website).
