Lowtide – ‘Underneath Tonight’ (mp3)

Listen to

Been spinning this release from Melb’s Lowtide at the moment. Formerly known as Three Month Sunset, the band spent summer in NZ where they played the Campus a Low Hum Festival in Feburary, sharing the stage with Caribou, My Disco and Toro Y Moi.

Title track ‘Underneath Tonight’ tips it’s hat to something along the lines of pre-Disintegration Cure (also reminds me a lot of Brooklyn band Minks), while b-side ‘Memory No. 7’ is a hypnotic, slow trippin’ voyage over the stratosphere. Lucy Buckeridge and Giles Simon’s alternatating vocals mesh seamlessly with one another, and with all those loose low-fi layers going on, it makes for a swell listen. Shitgaze has been abusing reverb for a while, so I’m glad these guys are restoring the faith.

This 7” is drenched in the kind of melancholic, golden speckled fuzz that makes my Friday just a little bit better. Hope it does the same for yours.
