Fake Tears – “Night Box”

Fake Tears
Kellarissa‘s Larissa Loyva and the Lost Lovers Brigade‘s Elisha May Rembold have been performing together as Fake Tears for a while now, and they’ve finally put some of their music online.

“Night Box” is a dark synthpop track that sports dual microKORG synths and harmonized vocals. This is a fitting introduction to the pair’s darkly atmospheric sound, since it sounds like what I’ve come to expect from their live shows.

Sitting in a schoolyard on a summer night

As seen on television
Last night Destroyer was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. It was awesome and weird to see a dude from the local scene on network television, especially since Bejar’s band included some more local folks.

This included Kellarissa, who is playing keys and singing backup in Destroyer. As well as supporting Dan, she is currently promoting her own record, Moon of Neptune, which comes out on March 9 through Mint. Download the dreamy “Undock” below, which brings together droning ambiance with tinkling synths and lyrics that are simultaneously cosmic and introspective.

Go to Exclaim! to read my interview with Dan. There’s also a web exclusive article right here. I interviewed Kellarissa last year, although the link isn’t working right now; you can read the whole thing over at MySpace.

Incidentally, I just got Destroyer’s Kaputt on vinyl, and discovered that it includes one entire side that wasn’t on the digital version. It’s mostly instrument and ambient, and it’s completely great.
