Music Link: "Bamboo" by Hinds

A sunburnt ‘50s garage Rock track slowly melting before your ears. I like the romantic intensity of the vocals.

Here's a very good track from a band with a unique style of making music, as explained by and article in The Quietus. It's a harsh, driving, and machine-like throwback to a mythical Industrial Age.
