The Big Pink: A Brief History Of Love
Buy! - (4AD)
This British band debuts with an accomplished album of epic, shoegazerish pop with a huge sound combining distortion-laden guitars, droning harmonies, a fair amount of electronics and some massive song hooks, along with lyrics ranging from the cynical to the heartbroken. The usual shoegazer/post-punk touchstones are here (My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus & Mary Chain, the Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen), but they do this stuff exceedingly well. 9/15/2009 - Don Yates
