Culture Addicts fave shoegazers, my pet genius, make a much overdue return to the music scene with a raw demo of a track that will eventually appear on their upcoming ‘Empire of Light’ double LP in its final form. We have loved this band since they released the ‘Might Strike Satellite’ EP and very excited that they are back.
Wondering where they went? Over the past 10 years, my pet genius have recorded, scraped, re-recorded, abandonned, and re-worked several album’s worth of material. They said it is ‘all towards the greater goal of creating something timeless’ and if this first raw demo for the track ‘Pricked’ is any indication, this is definitely an accurate statement.
The time has come….we have been waiting since their ground-breaking album Loveless released through Creation Records in 1991! Now, fast-forward to 2007, and My Bloody Valentine are set to make a comeback in 2008 with a string of 3 live gigs scheduled next summer:
I know everyone is saying what I am right now – “…haven’t they been working on a new album / comeback forever?”. It’s like an indie music soap opera – new albums being finished and trashed, nervous breakdowns, appearances in other project, etc. I will definitely have my fingers crossed for this one and hopefully after 17 years they won’t let us down.
