i still remember listening to coldplay's clocks for the first time. it sent a chill down my spine, and i wished for some better headphones. i got a similar effect when i listened to faultline's 'your love means everything, pt 2' featuring chris martin of coldplay.

faultline currently has two cd's out, their debut 'closer colder' and 'your love means everything'. according to their site -"Your Love Means Everything' is an equal mix of songs and instrumentals, the songs featuring guest lead vocals by Chris Martin of Coldplay, Michael Stipe of REM, Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips and Joseph Arthur". they also have one w/ keane. mostly new creations, they did cover 'wild horses' tho. y.l.m.e.pt2 still stands out the most.

if you are a coldplay purist - you didnt like nelly furtado/chris martin's 'rocky' duet - you may not like this either. this is darker, more haunting, and involving more wrenches. there's plenty of reverberating echoes and hollow sounds. sometimes i even hear trip hop.

they have music streaming from their site.

Hi Texas Cindy! I'm listening to KOB. I like anything with a cello. :) I can't remember ever hearing a band that featured it. Cool.

Thanks for the link!
