New Sounds: UltraChorus

The press release said “similar to The Postal Service but with much harder beats.” I don’t know if the beats are that much harder, but if you like Ben Gibbard’s side project, I can’t see how you won’t dig “Words Kept Talking” from UltraChorus. A self-proclaimed electro-pop duo out of Minneapolis who also dabble in production (they’ve remixed Phoenix’s “1901” – but, then again, who hasn’t?), UltraChorus have a fresh out-of-the-box sound that shouldn’t keep them a secret for long. (And, they might put out more than one record, unlike The Postal Service...)

I like this but I don't think it is as good as The Postal Service. A little more repetitive, a little less ingenious.
