Who does this remind me of?

I downloaded a whole bunch of free mp3s from Matador Records the other day. (I encourage you to do the same; there's a lot of great music there and you will probably find new bands you like, which is always a good thing.)

There's one track there, 14 Zero Zero by Console, and it reminds me a lot of some other tune or some other band, except I have no idea at all what it reminds me of. I can't even figure out what decade.

Your mission, then, is to listen to the track and tell me what song or band it reminds you of. Be sure to let it play for a while, because it's only once the tune starts picking up that it begins reminding me.

Thanks!
