Bowery Electric - Beat (1996)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Bowery Electric - Bowery Electric (1995)
Bowery Electric - Lushlife (2000)

A mesmerizing shoegaze/space rock/trip-hop hybrid. At times it's dark and drugged-out, elsewhere it's bright and warm, with the constant pulse of downtempo beats and a droning wall of guitars and synth.

Track listing:
1. Beat
2. Empty Words
3. Without Stopping
4. Under the Sun
5. Fear of Flying
6. Looped
7. Black Light
8. Inside Out
9. Coming Down
10. Postscript
11. Low Density

Everybody wants to go home
