Hear It Now: School of Seven Bells' 'Disconnect From Desire'

Check out the New York rockers' second disc before it hits stores July 13th

July 1, 2010 11:02 AM ET

On their excellent second album Disconnect From Desire, New York's School of Seven Bells update the atomic, textured sound of classic shoegaze bands like Ride and My Bloody Valentine with danceable beats, of-the-moment electronic textures and some of the prettiest, angelic vocals (courtesy of identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza) in indie rock. To celebrate the release of their new LP, which hits stores on July 13th, Rolling Stone has a complete advance album stream. (Pre-order the album here.) Highlights include the uplifting electronic ballad "Babelonia" and "I L U," which fuses ex-Secret Machines member Benjamin Curtis' chiming guitars and droning vocal samples with Alejandra's sensual vocals.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
