Diretamente de Taiwn vem o quarteto Manic Sheep que soltou mês passado seu segundo trabalho "Brooklyn" um delicioso noisepop bubblegum remetendo a vários subgêneros da música independe, pedaços de class of 86 aqui e ali, shoegaze no meio de tudo, dreampop explodindo pra todos os lados e sempre com aquele frescor pop cantarolável.
Certamente poucos irão degustar dessa delícia sonora, mas eu sugiro que se você esta simplesmente afim de curtir o dia/noite, escute alto e preferencialmente nos seus fones de ouvido, vai fazer todo o sentido.
