While we’re on that whole ‘making lists’ kick, I’d like to throw Felte into my top 10 record labels from the year.  Closely tied to another favorite label, Ghostly International, Felte produces rich ambient and indie rock bands inspired by the Joy Divisions, The Cures, The Wires and all of the post-punk albums sitting on your record shelves.  There isn’t one Felte release that I haven’t loved immediately, and Sydney-based duo Au.Ra are no exception.

Jane’s Lament‘s influences range from shoegaze to downtempo to dream pop, melding layers of Cocteau Twins-tinged guitar, drum kicks smothered in reverb and a hefty supply of feedback and noise singing over the grooves.

Felte’s prices are always affordable, so your depleted Christmas savings won’t nosedive into the red.  Have a Merry Christmas, boys and girls, and dream of sugar plums and 180-grams tonight.  xoxo
