MISS COSMOS: Self-titled: CDEP

Nov 04, 2008

England’s Miss Cosmos play dark alt-rock with touches of psychedelia and shoegaze. Think the strumming, ominous propulsion of “Dirty Boots” by Sonic Youth with the chanty vocals of The Stooges’ “We Will Fall” and the Eastern drone of “Venus in Furs” by The Velvets. Now dress it up in a paisley shirt and play it loud on a rainy day with the windows down. That’s what I did. Now my floors are wet, and I’m gonna start these four songs over, as if it was still the ‘90s and I was at home grounded with the copy of White Light/White Heat that I got from the library.
