Of all the releases I have heard lately, Ultraviolet have got the classic shoegaze sound most perfectly down to a T. Really great, in other words (and yet more evidence that Texas has become one of the most vibrant capitals of shoegaze). Check it out!
Favorite track: Fool's Gold.
The title track pulled me into Slow Crush's orbit, but Tremble held me there - alongside Lull from the Hush LP and the whole of Seasurfer's Dive In, it can send me into an altered state of consciousness. The album vibrates with hints and nudges, from Slowdive twangs to a Corgan-esque chord shift, but Slow Crush are their own sound - thick, dark melodic, etherealistic soundscapes with Isa Holliday's vocals both binding the music and rising above it. One of the best bands in years. sentientpoet
