Think about any cool element of any artist you might like. Can did it all that before… those artists were born.
Primal Scream “Accelerator”
Our bass player used to listen to this daily on his way to the University. He says it was better than coffee. The guitars were recorded by MBV’s Kevin Shields and are just his heaviest and most aggressive ever, more than any other he has made. One of our references, without question.
Sparklehorse "Ghost in the Sky"
The late Mark Linkous was a sad person who put an impressive vital energy in his music. This is a great example that sadness makes the world turn.
Magnetic Fields “California Girls”
We love this song because we can feel the California sun as Claudia Bonson sings how much she hates them. We love the songs that are about hating something.
Cocteau Twins “Sugar Hiccup”
All indie groups look up to Cocteau Twins and what they did in songs like this one. Even the bands that have never listened to them.
