The smooth fusion of dream pop and shoegaze is always something I welcome and a goal that is always in sight in the case of this song by Sounds of Sputnik - perhaps this is what is meant by the term nugaze - somewhat of a reshaping of the heavier dirtier shoegaze sounds dating back to the early 1990s a la My Bloody Valentine and Medicine. This reminds of of some of Kevin Shields' lighter work that he's done for various soundtracks. How do you see it?
If you can imagine smooth post-rock and psych-rock crossed and infused with a shoegaze element, this is likely what you would hear. Sounds of Sputnik
The shoegaze scene is really abuzz this year with so much good music out there, the new MBV album and Medicine's reunion. This song vibes in this same department - it's an instrumental with lots of reverb. What do you think of this track?
