Bombastic music from Richmond, Virginia has got me putting off my list making another night. Use to be that this sort of music didn’t get made on this side of the Atlantic, but the world turned upside down a few years ago and now Americans are making big sounding shoegaze music. White Laces seem to have an innate ability to meld the hazy sounds of Seam with the prog grandiose of iLiKETRAiNS and the muscle of Swervedriver. This is big music that chimes, pummels, wrenches and soars.
After a couple sold-out cassette releases the four-piece band have unleashed a slab of wax. It’s a five song EP that you can order from their Bandcamp page. You may have to wait for the mailman to get your vinyl but the band provide an immediate download of the songs if you don’t have anything against the mp3 format.
