Serena Maneesh

Do you like your melodies cloaked in fuzz? Your vocals lingering with a bit of echo? Do you still pull My Bloody Valentine's Loveless off the shelf? Got a thing for indie rock bands from Norway?

If you nodded your head to any of those questions, you should realize that body motions that function as sign language are useless over the internet...and check out Serena Maneesh.

Serena Maneesh isn't a person; it's a band from Oslo. Their self-titled debut album came out this summer in Europe to strong reviews. However, the US release won't be until October 25th. Their sound is more immediately accessible than My Bloody Valentine but they clearly have that early 90's fuzzy sound going on. Think Loveless, Goo, Slanted & Enchanted, etc.

Here are two tracks from their debut album:

Serena Maneesh - Drain Cosmetics
Serena Maneesh - Un-Deux

You can also watch a video for a song off one of their earlier EPs here.

I finally got around to downloading these songs. I really like "Un-Deux."

I love Drain Cosmetics... saw them support The Dandy Warhols on their recent tour and was impressed enough to buy their CD.

I totally missed this post...I woulda just linked to you before I posted about them. I'm psyched to see them.
