There's a paradox at the core of School of Seven Bells. How can the songs of Alejandra Deheza and Benjamin Curtis be so majestic, rhythmic and intimate at once?

The 2010 album, Disconnected From Desire, provides no clear answers and the music rarely stops provoking questions: What was that fleeting image? What is that glinting sheen of sound? Across the album, Deheza and her identical twin sister Claudia harmonize exquisitely over Curtis' home-produced, beat-conscious, dream pop soundscapes. With the departure of Claudia (in October 2010), the band has continued touring and adapting its synth-rich sound on stage. Stripped down in this semi-acoustic session, the melodies of School of Seven Bells shine through, as entrancing and serene as a moonlit ashram.
