The Gentleman Who Fell
This is a limited edition 7” single by Toronto-based Diamond Rings in advance of his debut full-length “Special Affections” due Oct 26th from Secret City. Following on the heels of his sold-out self-released 7“ for “All Yr Songs” that broke through on Youtube and garnered a “Best New Music” nod from Pitchfork, “Something Else” is Diamond Rings first official release on Secret City. The B-side is a collaboration with fellow Toronto-based artist Owen Pallett: a cover of Milla Jovovich’s mid-nineties hit “The Gentleman Who Fell”. Limited to 500 copies.
"a real standout, lovingly carrying the torch for the pepped-up gloom of O'Regan's post-punk forebears. Not to say that "Something Else" is that down of a song, with its jukey drum machine and that Strokes-y guitar hook giving off some delightful, dancefloor-ready vibes.../O'Regan ends up winning the "better without you" battle handily, coming off like the last of a famous dying breed of international, tongue-in-cheek miserablists. And that looks absolutely terrific on him."
