Featured Thrushes Release:
Sun Come Undone
Venerating Phil Spector
as the patron saint of sonic emotion, the premise is strikingly simple. Rock music should be beautiful. Casey?s guitar work elevates grand canyon reverb to high art. More canvas than skeletal structure, its wall of sound is huge and enveloping. Giving form to these dreamscapes are Anna?s simple, pretty vocal lines, which she colors with clean, clear guitar picking. Out of the sonic swirl, Rachel manages to distill a bass line somewhere between rocksteady groove and the root melody of a lullaby, her parts constructing a visible road map for Matt?s drums to effortlessly meander through. With bells and shakers sitting on a table beside the hi-hat, his drumming is more orchestral than rock-?n?roll and is peppered with beautiful triangle and xylophone melodies.
On Sun Come Undone, their debut full length, Thrushes craft gorgeous noise pop and swirling dream rock. Opening with the cavernous drumming of ?Aidan Quinn? into the revved-up, fuzzed out Jesus And Mary Chain
-esque ?Heartbeats,? and carried through the nods to Deadcan Dance
in ?Loyalty? and haunted claps of guitar thunder on ?Ghost Train,? to the final feedback soaked fallout of ?The Hardest Part,? this is the sound of blood on blood.
Thrushes hit single ?Heartbeats? was an instant classic and was awarded the?most blogged about song? worldwide for the week of March 30th 2007, according to venerable blog aggregator elbo.ws
