Listen to the guitars on ‘Sandstone’… epic! I find it hard to believe this song didn’t come about by accident, or at least the result of fumbling about with a sampler, a delay pedal, fairy dust, something! Tamaryn released their shoegaze opus ‘The Waves’ last August but I keep coming back to ‘Sandstone’.

Tamaryn (a New Zealand native) came to collaborate with Rex John Shelverton in San Francisco in 2009 before releasing their full length on Mexican Summer/Kemado Records. ‘The Waves’ does have its weaker moments but for a debut album they’ve already mastered their sound.

‘Love Fade’ is another Tamaryn stand out, not unlike Widowspeak‘s Mazzy Star-esque debut. The video isn’t bad either…
