Seattle's supernowhere exist in their own musical universe that occasionally visits ours. Their latest single, "Basement Window," starts off pleasantly enough. It has that indie rock with some inflections of folk present. It's definitely not traditional folk by any means, but it's the kind of indie rock you could see playing the Newport Folk Festival one of these days. The song pleasantly swirls around you as you listen, with just enough off kilter guitar sounds to keep your attention, and to keep the song interesting. And then, seemingly without warning, the song just takes off into a not-entirely unpleasant cacophony. It's almost as if Sonic Youth decided to be beautiful and not discordant.
You can watch the video for "Basement Window" below. Skinless Takes a Flight is due out March 2 on Topshelf Records. The album can be pre-ordered here. For more on supernowhere, check out the band's Facebook.
