Darker My Love – Fall

The Serena Maneesh album is proof positive that shoegazing is enjoying a fruitful second coming. Even more fresh off the press is the debut album from California’s Darker My Love which came out a couple of days ago. If MBV, Chapterhouse, Ride and the aforementioned Norwegians are your bag then prepare to feast on the contents held within. ‘Fall’ is the condensed view, a perfect snatch of what Darker My Love are all about (don’t forget Mark Gardener’s chappy’s had an EP of the same name). The guitars are set to grind and fuzz while the vocals swirl about with sumptous disregard, a bit like as if ‘Whirlpool’ was still the benchmark for all things dreamy (it is for me). There are several moments of lucidity to balance the books but it’s the dense undergrowth that really affects. Darker My Love seem content to help us party like its 1991 all over again. KD

    Wow. That’s a [adopts USofA accent]kick-ass track my friend!

    Great find.

    I hear a bit of a Joy Zipper / Smashing Orange thing going on here too?

    Bit heavier than a lot of the ’91 stuff.

    In short though: I totally love it!
