LASERHEAD: Ride Your Static: CD

May 10, 2007

A plethora of late ‘80s/early ‘90s swirling shoegazer guitar chords and ethereal vocal melodies blend for some post hardcore/indie rock that sounds more like Swervedriver than Superchunk. I was always more of a Punch Me Harder kind of guy, but I was into My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Curve, and some of the other bands who musically remind me of Laserhead. I just run into the same problem with those bands’ recordings as I do with this one, in that eventually it all just blends together too well and ends up drowning me into a doldrums of sound that really doesn’t have enough highs and lows for my short auditory attention span. But if that’s your thing, maybe you should stop staring at your shoes and head over to the No Idea page and pick this up.
