Love Of Diagrams

If there is one thing musically that Melbourne can be proud of, it's Love Of Diagrams. Having been together now for just over six years, this garage-indie band has only seen highs in their career. In 2004, the band got signed to local label Unstable Ape (home to artists such as Laura Jean, Sir, No Through Road, and recently signed Spider Vomit) and released their debut EP We Got Communication which received high praises, mainly in the UK. The band then went silent for a little while and in late 2006 they released their next EP which was self titled.

After that, the band went absolutely nuts. They got snapped up straight away by American label Matador (Cat Power, Yo La Tengo, and Pretty Girls Make Graves) and did an extensive tour across Europe, America, and the UK. Just recently the band have dropped their much anticipated debut album Mosaics which, much like everything else they've released, has been lapped up by absolutely every body. I haven't heard one bad word about it yet. Please do yourself a favor, give these guys a listen if you haven't already. If there was an award for hardest working band in the world, these guys would be nominated.
