The write-up is originally from I Am Waking To… website @ http://wakingupto.wordpress.com/2010/10/15/music-alliance-pact-october-2010-issue where we first offered “Cry So Well” (The Suntan Mix” as a free MP3 download. From I Am Waking To…:
if we ever had an office (would anyone like to sponsor?), typewriter‘s new album indian head massage would be a mainstay on our shared music playlist. we’d also be sure to have their awesome cover art plastered on our walls. that’s probably how thrilled we are to have the band generously offer us an exclusive mix of album track “cry so well”, as our MAP correspondent brian koh shares:
SINGAPORE: I’m Waking Up To…
Typewriter – Cry So Well (The Suntan Mix) – Free Download
Ten years and three line-up changes later, Typewriter have finally released their labor of love, Indian Head Massage. Their debut album is chock full of well-crafted power-pop tunes and guitar riffs, whimsical lyrics and one of the most dynamic rhythm sections in the country. As a live four-piece, Typewriter shed all inhibitions to deliver a spine-tingling dose of forgotten melodies to awaken the senses, but on record they take the time to flesh out the minute details that make each song stand out. This level of songwriting should come as no surprise, since each member has been a part of Singapore’s indie music legacy, having played in such notable bands as Ordinary People, The Oddfellows, Electrico and Moods. The combined experience adds favorably to their songcraft, allowing Typewriter to truly step out from the behemoth shadow of their predecessors. – brian.
