Customer Reviews

Bringing back 80s/90s UK sound.

I was lucky enough to see them perform most of these songs live at the highline ballroom in New York last month and heard Go Jetsetter on KCRW. The songs on Memoirs remind me 80s progressive bands from UK and Scotland on the creation record and 4AD labels. Vocalist Tim Yehezekey is eerily cool and the lyrics are simultaneously smart and obscure. Standout tracks for me are All You Ever Wanted and My Lucky Charm. If you like cinematic soundscapes, classic French soundtracks, Saint Etienne, Stereolab, Spirituallized or the Cocteau Twins then you will devour this album incessantly.

Indie pop band indulges their love of ‘60s film score dynamics

Anyone who’s heard the Postmarks previous two albums will remember how Tim Yehezkely’s breathy vocals recall 1960s French pop chanteuses and more recent vocalists like Nina Persson of the Cardigans and Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne, not to mention twee-pop groups such as Heavenly, Talulah Gosh, and the Shop Assistants. The band has always brought a strong ‘60s vibe to their records, with jaunty tempos, summery melodies and brooding bass lines, and their album of covers, By-the-Numbers, laid out many musical influences. Still, their earlier cover of John Barry’s “You Only Live Twice” and a buzzing organ arrangement of Richard Rodgers’ “Slaughter on 10th Avenue” won’t fully prepare you for this full-blown foray into vintage soundtrack sounds. “No One Said This Would Be Easy” opens the album with orchestral strings, tympani and castanets that suggest James Bond narrowly escaping the clutches of a Russian temptress. The bass and drums underlying the arrangement soften as Yehezkely enters, but the song’s forward momentum doesn’t lose a step, and the bridge add flashes of horns and glockenspiel to the drama. The effect amplifies the power of Yehezkely’s singing without having to amplify her volume or alter her breezy charms. It’s quite the brilliant trick to so fruitfully combine her girlish vocals with scored rock backings. Fans of British production music collections such as The Sound Gallery and The Easy Project will recognize the swinging London and international loungecore vibe. The group’s indie pop peeks through the grander productions in washes of synthesizers and vocal processing, but the songs are carried by the cinematic bombast surrounding Yahezkely’s dream-cool delivery. The lyrics loom enigmatically, clearing for moments of romantic reverie and painful separation, and there’s a terrific send-up (or perhaps jealous accounting) of “The Jetsetter.” The music’s enchantment is in its melodies and the interplay between Yehezkely’s fetching vocals and the thickly crafted arrangements. This is a sophisticated and charming album whose underlying pop craft casts a big shadow with its soundtrack dynamics. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2009 hyperbolium dot com]

My lucky charm

My Lucky Charm is the top track here. I am in the process of compiling the best mix of indie pop bands and My Lucky Charm easily made it into that category. As did Come Monday Night by God Help The Girl, You and I by Wilco, Public Office by Alaskan Summer, My Night With the Prostitute in Marseille by Beirut and Sleepy Head by Passion Pit.


Formed: 2006 in Miami, FL

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

South Florida pop trio the Postmarks formed in 2004 when Christopher Moll and Jonathan Wilkins, who had collaborated previously in the group See Venus, signed up singer Tim Yehezkely and began recording together. Moll and Wilkins' interest in soundtrack music, lush easy listening sounds, and orchestrated pop was a perfect fit with Yehezkely's breathy vocals and her melancholy lyrics. The group retreated to Moll's home studio in early 2005 and began recording tracks for an album. The resulting songs...
