The Brother Kite :: "Isolation" and "The Scene Is Changing"

The Brother Kite is one of the best bands you haven't heard of, unless you have exceptional taste or you're one of the my personal acquaintances on whom I've pushed their music. Perhaps their biggest fan is my former boss, a heavy-hitter VP at Virgin/Capitol who insists they are the best band he's heard this decade. The band's new record, Isolation, echoes the influences of their previous work (is it Brian Wilson playing Teenage Fanclub songs or the other way around?), only taking their sound to its most bombastic and directed eschelon, all soaring choruses, dark imagery and colorful, crystalline vocals in the dark.
