Seatraffic :: "Crimes"

San Francisco band, Seatraffic make music for basements. To be sure, there is a fair share of menace on single, "Crimes", something that evokes a glittering sort of film noir, a soundtrack for a world where Donnie Darko was not just metaphorically unsettling. The vocals and melody represent something of a break from this anxious drone, riding a wave of cold medicine out of the maw and into the sky. "Crimes" sounds both remote and distant, music for a film where there are only moral victories and the cities are made of ashes.
