Filtered vocals, quirky pop melodies, and glitchy beats characterize the sound of 'Fall In Love' the debut EP release from The Bad Spellers & The London Apartments on Post*Records. The album came about as a result of a collaboration between The Bad Spellers from Tokyo and Canada's The London Apartments. The seven tracks featured on the album include three from each band plus the title track, 'Fall In Love', which was recorded together by The Bad Spellers and The London Apartments. The album opens with three songs from The London Apartments, hailing from Ontario, Canada and featuring Justin Langlois and Erin Fortier. An affectionate collection of bedroom pop gems with enough of an electropop edge to attract fans of acts like The Postal Service, Sigur Ros, and The Notwist. Soft vocals, broken beats, and layers of synths give a dark, yet uplifting mood to the London Apartments' portion of the album. With lyrics powerful enough to appeal to emo and indie fans but beats sure to attract fans of electronic, The London Apartments are sure to bring in new listeners from all directions. If The London Apartments end act one of the album in the darkness of late night, The Bad Spellers pick it up and take us through the sunset and early morning with quirky indie pop love ballads. Tokyo's Tony Parmenter and Yasuko Ichinomiya use quirky 80s keyboards and beat machines combined with twangy guitars, toy xylophones and poppy vocals to create songs that are uplifting and fun to listen to. Their three songs on the album accurately characterize the fun-loving, positive attitude of The Bad Spellers. The final track on the album combines the best of both bands by allowing Justin of The London Apartments the chance to showcase his skills with beat sequencing alongside The Bad Spellers' keyboard hooks along with lyrics from both bands.
