Dead Mellotron – ‘Babe’ Monday 04 June, 2012
‘Glitter’ is one of my favourite releases this year. No question. I’ve been itching to post ‘Babe’ and since the ‘Glitter’ vinyl was released today, I finally can. The release was delayed due to the special pressing on clear vinyl (with real glitter sleeve). Orders should now be in the post *eyes mailbox*. Dead Mellotron‘s ‘Glitter’ is a must listen for shoegaze fans, full of swooning guitars, delicate melodies and unassuming brilliance. The only problem is that it could have been longer (just seven tracks) but nevertheless it isn’t lacking depth. ‘Babe’ isn’t necessarily the stand out track but its one moment midway through the record that manages to get under my skin every time.
