Song of the Day


DOWNLOAD: Blanchard

Being a huge Mazzy Star fan, it was like Christmas in July today when I found out that after more than 8 years, Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions are set to release a new album this fall. I probably played ‘Among My Swan’ so much back in the day, my friends might have thought I was suicidal, but it was just that I have always been moved by her darkly-themed songwriting and opiate-induced, sadly sexual vocal style. The Warm Inventions is her partnership with My Bloody Valentine drummer Colm Ó Cíosóig and while the resulting songs are eerily reminiscent of both of their previous bands, the styling he’s brought from My Bloody Valentine is more lush, more meticulously arranged…almost over-ripe…but ambiguous enough as not to overpower her wistful, husky voice which mines new depths of melancholy that only a double-dose of Lexapro can cure. ‘Through the Devil Softly’ is set to drop September 15th, but in the meantime you can check out Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions on her website.
