Still Shine on
Bringing us some pretty decent shoegazer pop from Dayton, Ohio, the Lab Partners write songs with the pop sensibility of the Jesus and Mary Chain and the noisy-echoey-guitar-over-strummed-guitar approach of Galaxie 500. Both bands I really miss, and Lab Partners are a worthy reminder. While some of the songs are definitely a little too pop for me, other songs are gorgeous, well-constructed, and well-executed in terms of noise texture and melody. Think also of Slowdive/Mojave 3. |
9, 4, 3, 6, 13.
1. mellow acoustic + voice pop song.
2. midtempo pop song with nice fuzz noise at beginning and end.
3. lazy and melancholic, ends with good noise texture. catchy.
4. melancholic w/nice reverby guitar melody. slow arching climax.
5. rockin’ groove and tremolo-ed texture straight from yo la tengo.
6. slow, spacey swing with epic build. nice organ sound.
7. midtempo, strummy. reminds me of late jesus & mary chain.
8. drony guitar noises building into a distant climax
9. **super sad, faraway vocals and strummed acoustic. gorgeous.
10. echoey guitar sounds producing a nice atmosphere.
11. long and slow 3/4, a sadness that goes on forever...
12. catchy sing along pop chorus
13. slow. intro of dissonant chords, then nice noisy twangy rock.
14. acoustic + voice. too sweet for my taste.
