To The Graves

I didn't realise until today (the news is about two weeks old) but Pretty Girls Make Graves are splitting up! The Seattle five-piece had released three albums, the most famous was 2003's The New Romance. In 2006 they released Elan Vital which failed to live up to its predecessor's word-of-mouth success. This is somewhat typical of many bands which found success in the 2002-2003 wave of American bands, who were burried under the Franz Ferdinand (et al) fever which ensued in 2004. A glance at the NME's Best Albums of 2003 list serves as a reminder of all the bands that have since been forgotten. The New Romance is an excellent album. Here is All Medicated Geniuses from it:
