'Coming Down' - The United States Of America

I was randomly going through youtube videos when I came upon this one





I felt it sounded strangely Labish. But I couldn't put my finger on it. Maybe it was the vocal delivery? .... The lyrics even mention 'reality'... 'Reality is temporary' sounds very Laetitiaish....

Anyway I checked out some of the comments and lo and behold, others feel the same way.

The United States Of America have always put me much more in mind of Broadcast than the groop. Listen to "Cloud Song" for example and it seems they were clearly an influence :)

The demo is perhaps more 'Lab like, what with the extra keys and everything. I reckon the vocals are quite reminiscent of Mary on possibly something like Seeperbold:

Yeah, I see what you mean there....definitely a bit of a Seeperbold feel in that recording :)

I would say the different eras of Broadcast are most evident in these songs. All three obviously have some influence on Stereolab but they seem more pronounced in a Broadcast way
