Carousels - Here To Me

Oh look, a band who sound a bit like My Bloody Valentine, except with a hazy female vocal, so let’s split the difference and call them Slowdive. Actually that’s hugely unfair on the Guildford duo - well, obviously it is, I wouldn’t be posting about them otherwise - because their guitars don’t drift, they pound and fuzz and make the road far rockier. There’s some very interesting stuff going on between the margins, not least the computerised bleeps throughout, the handclaps halfway through and the bursts of Bo Diddley-on-heat guitar. Their only other available demo, Sleep, starts exactly the same way as Brakes’ Ring A Ding Ding and then disappears into its own skewy reverie.
