Quite why there aren't more bands influenced by Brighter and Harper Lee is beyond my tiny mind, but at least Patrick Kelly, aka Summer Library, is going some small (yet beautiful) way to putting that right.
Summer Library have two completely gorgeous tracks available for nowt on their bandcamp page. You should put down that paint brush and go off and listen to them immediately, if you ask me.
Apart from those Keris Howard bands, Patrick says he takes his inspiration from Field Mice, Galaxie 500, the Pastels, and Rocketship. Do you need much more of a recommendation? Go listen.
