If you missed this album the first time like I did, run out and get this straight away. Superb work from a band who came back to us in a big way!
Recommended for dream pop, dark wave, post rock, and symphonic music fans.
The band has dealt with mental health and insecurities and has spun those issues into deftly rendered skeins of golden dream pop.
Excellent dream pop with psych and shoegaze elements.
This is a great record, one that every fan of great indie pop music should check out and savour.
It is lovely and moving and anyone who enjoys excellent production coupled with the musical chops this fellow has cannot go wrong.
A hazy melange of psych and dream pop, but coloured with other musical flavours. It is a kaleidoscopic journey start to finish, drawing you into its silvery-veined aural cavity.
This is a fantastic live album for all fans of New Model Army, orchestral pop, and deeply meaningful lyrics from a master poet. Terrific work!
The band definitely is dialled in to the darker side of psych, but offer it up with sunny melodies, exactly the sort of music I latch onto.
It has hooks that will reel you in and contains the requisite gauzy layers meshed with kickin’ guitar lines.
A great, somewhat different new release from these dream pop/shoegaze stalwarts, and one I can recommend highly.
There are strains of folk, chamber pop, dream pop, and psych pop interwoven in this release, and all of it is lovely.
A fine collection of covers by the always reliable and excellent KVB. Highly recommended!
Recommended for all fans of shoegaze with a grungier edge.
The chance to get your hands on a long lost album cannot be overstated, so do yourself a favour and pick this one up. Another cool addition to this enigmatic band’s body of work.
One of the many strengths of this band is their penchant for insanely catchy, top shelf melodies.
Blind is the tenth album from Atlanta based post punk project, Black Swan Lane, the musical vehicle for multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Jack Richard Sobel. It is a dreamy, slow burn of a record. Not to be missed.
This is an album about love, friendship, and loss. In these troubled times, it is well worth your time to peruse this collection and let this fine work settle around you in this New Year like a warm cloak.
This album is a sleeper and demands to be listened to on a good set of headphones. It is music that unfurls over time and reveals itself in layers. A really good addition to Meg Baird’s body of work. Highly recommended!
One of Hitchcock’s finest in a large body of excellent work.
