it hugs back...
Received a mail from Too Pure with a short introduction to their Singles Club which they'll launch in September. The whole idea behind the club being a monthly release of a 7' single with two previously unreleased songs (500 copies only, so rather exclusive). The band of December is It Hugs Back which I had never heard of before, so I went and checked it out. And it's alright, nothing special, but alright still. For some reason they insist that it's shoegaze and Drowned In Sound even calls it "the soundtrack produced if Evan Dando and Kevin Shields were making love in a log cabin" (I'm more inclined to think that it sounds like a somewhat boring version of Mojave 3, but then again what the hell do I know). But check it out on Myspace, if you feel like it. And da video:
And now I'm off on vacation, off to beautiful South of Jutland (and just ever so slightly boring too, but don't tell anyone).
