NYC Garage Poppers Big Quiet release "Mara & Dana 7" + play CMJ

Yes, we are finding lots of local bands to write about in the list of official CMJ bands overe here - which is getting larger and larger by the hour. The second half of 2015 has been rather prolific for NYC jangly garage pop trio Big Quiet, who released in June their self-titled debut cassette, following it up in September with a 7" entitled "Maura & Dana" (streaming below). The album/tape takes us through a lo-fi journey of rediscovery of the guitar pop of the '80s, quoting various influences ranging from early R.E.M. (Why Do We Bother?, Say Yes) to The LA's (Ghost), with the spectrum or The (early) Bangles lingering behind Marisa Cerio's melodies and harmonies. The 7", released under Unblinking Ear Records, is a more solid piece of jangly pop, with the title-track delivering their best and most open melody to date, and the early influences resulting less obvious.
