Everything Is falling Apart, or EIFA for the lazy ones (like me), comes from mexican lands and was born at the already-distant 2006, composed of the duo J. J. Cerda and Ernesto A. Martinez. Although I've never seen their name anywhere in all the world wide web until a week ago, they have already composed a handful of songs and EPs, whose best songs were compilared at the album called Greatest Hits (there wouldn't be a better name, don't you think?). Recorded was recorded between the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011 with an old notebook and modest instruments, and the same album was re-recorded later on, somewhere in the time interval between April of 2011 and the present moment. This time, with better equipment, and renaming it as Teenage Heart.
Apart these curiosities and the technical limitations the duo endured, they did an astonishing work with this TH. Walls of noise, almost-muted vocals coming from some ethereal dimension, bittersweet gloomy melodies peppered with electronics here and there, some melancholy, hazy atmospheres, broken dreams... to summarize it all, plain great music for everyone into the classics My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Astrobrite and newcoming acts like Vinyl Williams, however (and fortunately), they go even further and guide their highly atmospheric Shoegaze with New Wave, Post-Punk and Coldwave vectors, reminding the works of A Place To Bury Strangers, Soft Moon and, of course, the eternally beloveth Joy Division, The Cure, The Smiths and the likes. Just give a listen at their covers of these two aforementioned bands and the version of "I Wanna Be Adored", from The Stone Roses, to notice what I'm talking about...
As usual, I drop a download link right below. I thank Ernesto for providing me a link for downloading his album, as the original one was broken. No more words, just let us drown in sonic bliss. ;)
update: A brand new song from the (now) mexican trio, called Post-Romantic, was released August 5th and is available for free in their bandcamp. This piece relates even tighter with modern Dream Pop outfits such as The Bilinda Butchers, DIIV, Dråpe, The Radio Dept., among similars, although their identity remains clear and bright as crystal. I'm very glad to see how EIFA is evolving, I'm sure they'll become one of the greatest bands dedicated to this "new" Nugaze in the near future. That's why you all should pay attention very closely to them. As I said before, just drown in sonic bliss and enjoy! ;)
