Dolores O’Riordan, RIP

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Just heard the news that Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer for The Cranberries, has just died at the untimely age of 46.

There were most famous for “Zombie” and a few other hits, but my favorite song of theirs has always been the melancholy “Daffodil Lament.” Here’s a live version.

Shoegazer Sunday: Sleep Party People’s “I’m Not Human At All”

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Getting harder to find any Halloween or horror-themed Shoegaze, and anytime I find a Darkgaze or Blackgaze song I think I like, the Cookie Monster Metal vocals come in to ruin it.

So here’s Sleep Party People, who seem to be at the intersection of post-rock, chillout, prog rock and Shoegaze, and the bunny masks on display here in “I’m Not Human at All” make it just odd enough to use for the Halloween offering.

I always thought this musical number from Corpse Bride was pretty cool, and I still do. It also has more than enough dancing skeletons for Halloween:

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s The Denzels “Self-Talk”. They sound a bit like classic-era Jesus and Mary Chain, with maybe a bit of early U2 thrown in.
