Song of the Day (12/13/09)

A rather blatant replication of Yeasayer's sound, Nurses' "Technicolor" is essentially the poor man's version of "Sunrise." That said, the today's Song of the Day is still worth a listen, as its tribal percussion creates an air of Middle Eastern worldliness with which few indie acts have experimented, so the atmosphere remains fresh, even if its inspiration has done it bigger and better before. Even if you do find "Technicolor" a bit too derivative for your liking, don't write them off; the remainder of the Portland psych-rockers' most recent release, Apple's Acres, explores a more unique, individualized style.
