Deruchette - "You..."

Finland's Deruchette have been under my radar for a while now. Their quiet sense of melody piqued my curiosity a few weeks ago, and since then I've come to appreciate this band's potential - and their already impressive brand of minimalist pop.

With "You...," for instance, the self-released track that can be downloaded here, Deruchette combine guitar work reminiscent of early Animal Collective offerings with echoed vocal and melody work that would be more at home on a How to Dress Well or Bon Iver album.

It's a short but stunning track, and more importantly, it lends itself well to repeated listens (preferably with headphones). But don't stop there; while you're at it, check out some more of their free jams: "Yet Another Mess" and "Theme Tune to a Repetitive But Happy Life."
