Oh, and shoegazey/dream pop band Wildhoney put together a great Spotify playlist of their favourite shoegaze songs that’s worth a listen.
Thanks for posting this one up - ordered my cd a week or so ago, but listened to the album a couple of times and am definitely enjoying it (even if it’s not as immediate as its predecessor). I guess ‘self release’ is the problem with the coverage - do bands even send them out for review? (I think DiS missed Northern Automatic Music and they were signed to a label at the time)…
details of Curve reissues:
nothing hugely revelatory, though it would be nice hearing some of it remastered.
I would have thought they’d covered this by now. Beginning to feel like money for old rope!
not prime-era MBV by any means, but it looks like some rare promo from the Conway era with unreleased tracks has shown up on discogs:
I think I’d be more interested in a new ep…
that goes without saying (just what the hell happened with those repressings too?) but figured it would be of some interest.
pretty good, but I miss some of the energy (though it shows up a bit at the end.)
We need to be ready for anything. If MBV see this pic, they are going to feel like they failed and need to reevaluate.
Newmoon . 27 October London. Who else wants to go?
Sigur Ros announce a festival, but more importantly Kevin Shields activity!:
“kevin is currently finishing an all analog vinyl version of loveless and isn’t anything and is also working on material for a new my bloody valentine album to be released in 2018.”
I mean, I’ll believe it when I see it, especially since those vinyl represses have been in the pipe for ages, but still…
New Pia Fraus album
