New Matador band: Love of Diagrams

Matador Records, like Sub Pop and Merge, rarely gets things wrong. So when the label announces it has signed a new act, chances are we're looking at a winner. Aussies Love of Diagrams are the newest members to the Matador fold. The band is a cute little hipster trio consisting of two girls-Monika Fikerle on drums and Antoni Selbach on bass-and a dude, guitarist Luke Horton. Matador describes their sound as "teaming late 70s/early 80s noise, punk, and pop art" and "love-at-first-listen familiarity and a voice all their own with such panache." Expect their Matador debut to drop early next year.
