New Noise!



Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

        The bassist is wearing a Deep Wound t-shirt. *I’m* nearly too young to know who Deep Wound were. How does he?!

        I do really like the Nothing record and EP a lot (great tones, and the songs actually have hooks, which sometimes get forgotten in the genre), but I found some live recordings (including a KEXP one) and….yeesh. Guitars still sounded good but they gotta work on those live vocals, shoegaze or no.Report

    Just some trivia for you there.Report

    So, my son gave me a list of bands that he has been listening to over the last year, and he described a few as shoegazzy. So as I go through the list, this made me think of you:

    The Glasgow band sounds good. I’ve been listening to some Flying Saucer Attack and the new Mogwai, so some more noise like that would fit.Report
