A classic mid-90s release in the shoegazer genre
“this tucson duo has that deep, crisp, loud, soft, fuzzy, simple, complex, plethoric, sound.”
A beautiful wrestling of ethereal noise, Lovesliescrushing emerged in the early 90s as America’s answer to Britain’s My Bloody Valentine and the nascent shoegazer scene. LLC’s first two Projekt releases of captivating low-fi sonic atmospheres invoked a tangled palette of noisy guitar textures, frenzied distortion and longing ethereal vocals. From milky softness to a blasting metallic roar, instrumentalist Scott Cortez took the shoegaze genre to it’s furthest regions, far removed from song-structured pop. On these two albums, Lovesliescrushing originated a sound still reckoned with today.
Projekt reissues LLC’s 1993 debut bloweyelashwish and the 1996 follow-up xuvetyn.
VEILS OF GORGEOUS GUITAR WASH AND ANGELIC GOSSAMERY VOICE. BEAUTIFUL AND GRANDIOSE ORCHESTRAL SUBTLETY AND CHILDLIKE NAIVETE, BILLOWY, FUR-LINED, MILKY SOFTNESS TO A BLASTING METALLIC ROAR. 75 MINUTES OF SPACEY DRUMLESS IRIDESCENT TEXTURES AND ATMOSPHERIC SOUNDSCAPES. MELISSA’S VOCALS ARE GLASSY SHIMMERING AND EVANESCENT LIKE SNOWFLAKES MELTING IN YOUR HAND.
