note: *UK Post-Hardcore group have now changed their name to Kid Pang Lakes (San Luis Obispo, CA, USA)
Seth Roberts (formerly of Watashi Wa) emerges with his latest project, Lakes. Featuring a melodic indie rock sound in the same vein as bands like Mae and former labelmate Copeland, Roberts diverges from Watashi Wa musically, while retaining a songwriting style that focuses on life, love, and hope. The Photographs EP was officially released in September of 2006 on The Militia Group.
