GHOST AQUARIUM: Light Cannot Escape: 7”

Mar 31, 2009

This is an interesting record here, mainly for the fact that it sounds like two very different bands. The a-side is an original, “Light Cannot Escape” that sounds sort of like Dinosaur Jr without J. Mascis on guitar. It’s guitar-driven with some fuzzed out bits, and instantly memorable. The vocal style reminds me of My Bloody Valentine. This song is very much on the shoe gazer side of things. A great song, to say the least. The flipside is a cover of Christian Death’s “Spiritual Cramp,” which they do quite well. Well enough to make you think this was a split 7”. It’s cool and all, but after hearing their original song, I would prefer to hear another original instead of a cover. Anyway, this is worth picking up. It comes on dark gray vinyl.
