New Song + Video : The Diamond Center : Caraway

Richmond’s Diamond Center is one of the more interesting outfits I’ve come across lately, which is kinda saying something given the muck I’ve been travailing. Trading in psychedelic currency, the band delivers a dreamy mulch of Beach House, Mazzy Star, Brian Jonestown Massacre with maybe just a little Fleetwood Mac thrown in for good measure. Toss in a live show that incorporates dynamic visuals and stresses improvisation, and these boys and girls are sure to have little problem finding ardent followers as their reputation grows.

2011 is already shaping up to be a busy year for The Diamond Center. First up, a handful of SXSW performances to coincide with the release of the Caraway/20Twin 7-inch (pre-order it here), the first of which the band promises will be several limited-edition releases leading up to the release of the full-length follow up to 2009’s My Only Companion.

MOKB is mighty happy to have laid our paws on the mp3 and video for Caraway, an alternately slouching and soaring, but totally engrossing, epic of shoegazery replete with a staggeringly creepy video that looks as thou it were cobbled together from Manson Family home movies.
