The studio version is even prettier.

Shoegazer Sunday: The Black Ryder’s “Seventh Moon”

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

The breathy vocals of Aimee Nash, half of Los Angeles-by-way-of-Australia duo The Black Ryder, merit obvious comparison to Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval. Here they are with “Seventh Moon,” which reminds me a bit of SPC ECO’s “Tweet Fields at Night” and is about 97% pure beauty by weight.

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

I was already inclined to like Minor Victories based on the presence of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell. And then “Scattered Ashes (song for Richard)” is not only a swell song in its own right, but has video that punches all the Internet’s meme buttons at once.
