Shoegazers heaven: new band Tamaryn
« on: January 01, 2012, 10:15:01 AM »
I highly recommend Tamaryn's "The Waves" (2010, Mexican Summer) to all fans of the "shoegazer" genre.  This band is comprised of a female vocalist/lyricist and a guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, although there are more people when they play live (similar to the amazing Curve from the 90's).  They manage to wear their influences on their sleeve (Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Curve, Mazzy Star) while still sounding unique.  "The Waves" is one of the strongest debut albums I've heard in awhile!!

PS: Someone on Amazon recommended the following "modern" shoegazer bands and I wasn't terribly impressed with any of them much: Pasteboard, Lotus Plaza, The Fauns.  Tamaryn is the best by far I've heard.  Anyone have recommendations for other similar, relatively new/unknown bands with heavy effects, reverbed guitars, etc.?  Much appreciated.  :)
