Psychic Rites. Imagine Joy Division grew up in Moscow, Idaho, a small college town with a surprising connection to the Manchester scene. Imagine that Ian Curtis was exposed to hipster irony and decided he wanted to have a bit of fun with all that doom & gloom. You might have something like this. Or maybe this or this. (No, really.)

Posts like this make me proud to be from Idaho, the state where you statistically most like to own a motorcycle, ride a horse, or be a millionaire.

Also the home town of Josh Ritter.

I love Idaho. Lots of variety in the landscape, and one of the few places in the US I can actually drive to in a day.

Moscow, pffft. Head south a bit and enjoy some Built to Spill

Holy shit I know one of the guys holding a cat. Moscow is my home town and I miss it sometimes. The music scene there was surprisingly diverse when I was growing up. Shout out to the Coldlab.

I'm sorry but the way this FPP was phrased I thought it was about a band called "Imagine Joy Division" that played Joy Division songs in the style of Imagine Dragons, or Imagine Dragons songs in the style of Joy Division, and then I had to go cry softly.

I saw Psychic Rites play not too long ago here in Portland and they were awesome. This style of music is really kicking off right now for some reason.
