Damn damn damn I love this Japanese shoegaze band's Broken Bird 12" EP, released on Sugarfrost in 1992. The band regards its footwear comfortably alongside My Bloody Valentine or In-the-presence-of-nothing-era Lilys. I regret that I couldn't coax sibilant-free versions from my turntable, but these recordings should still bring some boom to your room. Here are my two favourite songs from the four on the EP: Rise and Sink. Listen to them back to back and you get Swoon.
