Lorelei - Sometimes...



At long last, another 5-star-er from my not-so-vast collection. I put Lorelei's "Sometimes..." right up there with Velocity Girl's "Forgotten Favourite" and Primal Scream's "Velocity Girl" on the mantle of indie pop feel goodness. This song is from their first 7", released on Slumberland Records in 1991. By the b-side, they were already noticeably darker. By their next release, their chanteuse was gone and their metamorphosis into an angular, abstract indie rock band was complete. They're still making music, as you can read about here. I like their music on both sides of the cocoon, but The Bitter Air EP is still the standout for me.

Wow -- I never knew Lorelei began with a female vocalist. I have the Asleep EP and ...Touch The Stove, but have never heard this. Thanks for posting.
