Texas based Flowerbed are back with two new tracks on a release they share with labelmate’s Heavytrip.
The first of the two new songs Pyrite is a dose of shimmering and poppy dreampop. The band’s sound gets slightly heavier at first on Selenite but it soon settles down and glides along somewhat majestically. My only gripe is that they are both a bit short!
I have not heard of Heavytrip before and I am not sure their two contributions here are what I am after – sorry chaps! That said their blend of alternative rock/slowcore is not a turn off and I would happily listen to them again. There are hints of psychedelia on Reverie whilst Spun is thriving guitars complete with vocals sung in a monotone style.
