Our 1996 track “Madras,” from Ever, was selected as a “Deep Cut” for the iTunes Essentials Shoegaze & Beyond playlist alongside legendary bands Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Jesus and Mary Chain, Lush, and more. Here’s what iTunes has to say about the Deep Cuts selections:
All things must pass, intense musical movements included, but when the first-wave shoegazers finally looked up from their footwear, what they saw was a whole new scene that they themselves had begotten. The proof is in the Deep Cuts…
The band’s singer, Suzanne Perry, appears on one song of the latest Falling You album, Human. “An Angel Ameliorate” is very ambient, a little bit like our cover of Black Tape’s “Could I Stay the Honest One” but with Suzy’s classic “glossolalia” style lyrics. Very sad and pretty. To the best of my knowledge, this is her first released work since Melodyguild’s cover of “Sally’s Song” on the Projekt Holiday Single 2 back in 2004. You can check out the track for free from Magnatune here.
UPDATE: this won Best Vocal Album of 2006 from New Age Reporter. Congrats!
