BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE: Spacegirl and Other Favorites: CD

This one’s a bit different from other releases I’ve heard from these guys. There’s still an abundance of the ’60s psychedelic sensibilities that fuel their other work, but here they seem to be channeled through a heavy dose of Jesus and Mary Chain sparseness and that warped record quality that My Bloody Valentine permeated their Loveless album with. Still, this is some mighty fine, albeit unexpected, work.
