Mp3 of the Week: Mobius Band

DOWNLOAD: Mobius Band, Friends Like These [mp3]

Lots of wistful indie bands underwent hipster-mandated retraining in the early naughts and emerged, after a quick stop in laptop voc tech, as certified dealers of . . . wistful, indie-ish compu-pop. Boston (and now Brooklyn’s) Mobius Band were among the least likely applicants for the job, and yet we can’t think of anyone, save perhaps the Postal Service, who do it better. In the (above) video for Friends like These," the first single from their new Heaven, the trio geekily overplan a dance party in their apartment and almost pull it off, except for the part at the end where they bore everyone to tears with a tour-photo slideshow. If you're not afraid of the snow, stop by their CD-release gig is tonight at the Middle East.
