Shoegaze in the soil with Dead Mellotron
MP3: Dead Mellotron - Nothing I Ever Imagined
MP3: Dead Mellotron - Saltwater (Beach House cover)
NOTE: Today's contribution comes from Matt Giordano, who is wearing his shoegaze on his feet. Or something. Fuck yeah!
I was sent this today by my friend Paul, and damn, it's a pretty good shoegazey-pop confection. Dead Mellotron mix the perfect amount of fuzz and ambiance in there, and it's just the work of one dude. It harks back to the glory days of the JAMC and My Bloody Valentine (and new-gazers The Legends), yet with a slight more preciousness that eases the tension. There's a link to download the EP, but click fast: http://www.mediafire.com/?gnjhczofjtm. Enjoy!
