The Sound - mixtape

When I got Tracy's request to add some content to her blog I immediately thought that this was the perfect opportunity to share a band that is near and dear to both of our hearts…The Sound, who just might be the best 80’s band that almost no one has heard of. I remember the first time I played this band for Tracy on a hot summer day in her old NYC apartment, she turned to me after hearing the first song on this mixtape and said something along the lines of “how the hell have we lived this long without having heard this band before”. So give these tracks a listen if you love Echo and The Bunny men, Simple Minds, Sixteen Candles or The Breakfast Club, and maybe you’ll understand how we felt on that long gone hot summer day.

  1. I can only hope this is followed up by a little Crispy Ambulance!

  2. Ah Crispy Ambulance. I didn't mention that The Sound does have a bit of that dark wave thing going on did I. I made them sound poppy in my post but they are really more depressed then poppy.
