Airs - Adore (2013)

Some downcast, heavy SF shoegaze for your Sunday. There's a rawness and anger bordering on hardcore/metal at work on Adore - some screaming here, some double kick there, and is that a blastbeat? - but, at its heart, this might actually be an emo record that got buried in distortion, feedback, and reverb. Free download via their bandcamp.

Track listing:
1. Adore
2. Blue
3. Still for a Moment
4. Missing
5. Adrift
6. Sundials
7. Morgan and Frankie
8. What You Were

  1. I've actually been following these guys for a while and I'm curious to see where they're going. The second disc of Gloomlights was an utter beast and I'm not sure they can top it, but I'd like to think they'll do something equally impressive in an entirely different vein with some time. They really do have a knack for writing these perfect little pop gems and pushing them to the brink with sheer noise and fury.
