Lovesliescrushing - Bloweyelashwish (CD)

$ 17.99


Release Date: 08/01/94

From milky softness to blasting roar, instrumentalist Scott Cortez takes the shoegaze genre to its furthest regions.

A classic mid-90s release in the shoegazer genre.

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 its furthest regions, far removed from song-structured pop. On these two albums, Lovesliescrushing originated a sound still reckoned with today.

A beautiful labyrinth of noise… a combination of Melissa’s ethereal vocals and Scott’s saturated, overloaded distortion wrestled from his 12-string guitar. The resulting “ethereal noise” is chaotic and innovative… gritty, choppy, stunning and beautiful. A sound that captures the sensation of falling, floating on a wave of sounds bleeding into one another like staining watercolors.

”This criminally overlooked duo’s debut album is a true masterpiece of atmosphere. At its core,bloweyelashwishis the graceful interplay of heavily reverbed guitar and angelic vocals conveyed through a tangled palette of genres (shoegaze, noise pop, ambient, drone). The concept is elevated to breathtaking heights through a haunting combination of lo-fi soundscapes, abstract layers, atonal droning, and heavily processed noise passages – and the results are nothing short of otherworldly. Captivating and occasionally unsettling, these songs come through like ghostly transmissions from another dimension. -AC
