Florida may be more synonymous with rap, jook and hip hop than cinematic indie-pop, but that only makes The Postmarks stand out even further from the crowd. The trio, fronted by Tel Aviv-born “girl with a boy’s name” Tim Yehezkely, made an instant impression on the release of their self-titled debut in 2007, racking up plaudits, prestigious tours and a celebrated appearance on cult kids’ TV show ‘Yo Gabba Gabba’ in the process. They followed that up in November 2008 with covers album By The Numbers, originally released on a one track per month basis and each song containing the corresponding month number in the title. Third album Memoirs At The End Of The World, out February 1 through Unfiltered Records, doesn’t need any such gimmick and was a hit with critics upon its US release back in August. Here, The Postmarks expand into more grandiose pop-noir arrangements with an experimental edge that sees dub reggae textures rub up against classic soul harmonies and horns to create an alluring and emotional concoction. Listen to three tracks over on Myspace.
