Coma Cinema - "Flower Pills"

For your consideration: South Carolina's Coma Cinema. Emerging from Columbia's presumably growing music scene (i.e., Toro Y Moi, Washed Out, etc.), Coma Cinema is a band to watch in 2010. As seen and heard in their skillful and beautiful video for "Flower Pills," for instance (see embedded video below) , their sound suggests an edge that is absent from some of the more popular indie musicians. That is, they seem to privilege a darker, more introspective approach to song structure - reminiscent of Yo La Tengo, Beulah, or Beck at their moodiest - while many of their contemporaries continue to exploit the less and less ironic retro, lo-fi craze. And as you wait for this band to inevitably explode, download their music for free at their website.
