Dream Pop at it's best. Plays nice with Cure.

Wait. Lush as in "Heavenly Bodies" and the pop-ready "Ladykillers" from the album Lovelife? The Lush that still sits in my CD collection from 1995?!? THAT Lush!?!??!? Every once in a while, life offers up a shockingly good surprise. This is one of them.

It's wonderful! On par with their early work, which is an incredible achievement for a band that has been absent for 20 years. So happy to have you back, Lush!

Extraordinary. This is certainly one return I never dared hope to see. But here it is. Lush, in all of their shoegazey glory. Not a retread of their older work, as one might have expected; Lush's lyrics have certainly matured along with the band. Nevertheless, "Blind Spot" fits comfortably on the same shelf as Lush's Spooky & Split phase rather than the more Brit-Pop influenced Lovelife. Emma Anderson again displays her flair for unusual yet seductive sonic structure. And then, there's Miki. Tanned, rested, and ready. Her hair may be it's natural black color, but her voice is as strong and emotionally expressive as ever. Whether this is a prelude to a new full album or a one-time only affair, this is as essential a purchase as it gets, and a solid exhibit A showing how one can both work within, and yet challenge the boundaries of, shoegaze as a genre.

Who Are…The History of Apple Pie

By Annie Zaleski, Contributor

Two years ago, Stephanie Min and Jerome Watson formed The History of Apple Pie as a modest bedroom project. Little did they know how fast things would move: A warm reception to a few songs they posted online caused them to cobble together a live band; in the months that followed, the pair used the classified ads to connect with James Thomas, met Aslam Ghauri through Thomas and found Kelly Owens through their pals the… more »

eMusic Selects: Pink Noise

By Laura Leebove, Managing Editor

[eMusic Selects is a program designed by eMusic to give exposure to unsigned or undersigned bands. This month's selection is Pink Noise] Pink Noise make cinematic art rock — layers of piercing, mathematic guitars over subtle electronic programming, fronted by Sharron Sulami's smoky, frantic alto that channels the likes of PJ Harvey and Karen O. The band in its current incarnation formed in Brooklyn, where they live now, but their members met in Israel — Itamar… more »

Behold the Shoes: A Brief History of Shoegaze

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

No, it's not a great name: "shoegazing." Very few artists who've actually played in that style like the term; Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai has called it "a dumb term made up by clueless... idiots... if someone called us shoegazers, I'd be pretty unhappy." The other leading candidate seems to be "dreampop," which is also not quite satisfactory. But we're stuck with those words, because it's undeniable that there's a certain tendency in rock music, especially British… more »
