The music shimmers across the ears in hazy multilayered reverberating, echoing guitars and vocal which have the ability to calm the deepest creases in a cotton shirt, as they gently coat the room in a soft palette of immersive sound.

From the most recent LP μ (ミクロ) (M (Micro)) – the first of the nine tracks – Watershadow.

Dead Vibrations is a Swedish shoegaze quartet.

Dead Vibrations

Frequently to be found in live performance around much of Europe, Dead Vibrations do from time to time also make it in to the studio and are a quartet I must get back to in full in due course.

By way of an introduction – a live performance of an as yet unreleased track – which, by name alone, describes the mood of the song – Chemical Hug.

Greenhouse – Vincent Van Slow – Single Review

The Canadian shoegaze quartet Greenhouse released the single Vincent Van Slow on the 4th.

Greenhouse

Not to be confused with the US electronica duo of the same name introduced in 2013, Greenhouse deliver music that fills the room with slowly rotating interweaving guitar that minds of a fine shower which, although each droplet is light of touch, is contained within a concentration that is as quick to drench the clothes as a tropical storm, resultingly, despite though perhaps simultaneously due entirely to its fragility, generates a long-stay memory imprint.

In the slow tempo Vincent Van Slow (available on bandcamp) unhurriedly unfurled individual notes and chords drift away in to silence yet are carried by the shimmering reverb and echo as though in a continuum of sound, which wraps itself around the listener in delicate silky threads.

On the 15th the first track from the album – Him – was released as a stand alone single which is available on bandcamp.

Washes of pulsing guitar breeze through the room in ever evolving chord and tempo changes giving Him a sense of organic movement which hypnotically enmeshes the listener in a silken web, through which the spectral voice shimmers in shadowy light.

The Age Of Colored Lizards – Stars Are Falling – Audio

The Norwegian shoegaze outfit The Age Of Colored Lizards released the EP Another Day on the 29th of March.

Allow yourself plenty of time to recover after hitting play as, although the four track release (available on bandcamp) last for only roughly a quarter of an hour, its hypnotic blurriness keeps brain in neutral for far longer.

Akin to watching clouds slowly drift on a summers day the gauzed reverberating guitars and voices are in a continual, yet gradual, reforming of shapes and layers as The Age Of Colored Lizards hold back the ticking of the clock.

My selection from Another Day is the closer – Stars Are Falling.
