FOUR HUNDRED, THE: Self-titled: CD

This band broke up just after they got the CD to the manufacturer. Big whammy. Shit, this reminds me of something. Something dream-poppy, droney and it’s driving me crazy that I cannot remember. The occasional My Bloody Valentine/Yo La Tengo influence seeps through. The vocals aren’t all that swell. The keyboards are a tad overpowering compared to the rest of the instruments, and the recording is nice, yet a little overly echoey. The songs are way, way too long for what they are. And too many things are layered over one another – not making a pleasant noise, but a chaotic, sloppy one. Bah.
