Purple Shoe(gaze) with R.M. Hendrix



Diretamente do contato imediato feito pelo mentor Michael Hendrix, um ep (Super Moo) e um album que tiraram o folego do TBTCI, shoegazer em formato atual misturando com glam e muito wall of sound pegue o album This Dreadful Mess e vá direto para a soberba Yr Queen is Dead e veja do que estou falando, riffs pegajosos, muito Swervedriver e Serena Maneesh em formato atualizado, Global Affair/Crack the Code é um Flying Saucer Attack light, um deleite, The Nóir é outro exemplo crucial de que o novissimo R.M. Hendrix vem como um raio brilhante e barulhento rechear o universo do shoegazer atual, absolutamente necessario.

Para elucidar mais ainda o post, como tem sido praxe aqui no TBTCI, convidamos Mr. Michael Hendrix para tecer comentarios sobre processo de gravação e peculiaridades das canções, com vocÊs R.M. Hendrix:



The Dreadfull Mess & Super Moo by Michael Hendrix :


I recorded the basic tracks of the songs with either Jazzmaster or Jaguar running through a Vox AC15. This gave me a consistent sound bed to experiment upon. Once I had that recorded then I could start letting all my influences play out for both tones and vocals. This was really liberating because I could let the lyrics and mood guide how each song evolved without worrying if it would get so different that it didn't sound like it belonged on the record.


Here are the influences track by track on This Dreadful Mess:
1. My Bloody Valentine
2. Fennesz
3. Swervedriver, Serenah Maneesh, Neu
4. Bowie, Catherine Wheel, Radiohead, Starflyer 59
5. The Cure, Seefeel
6. MBV, Radiohead
7. Primal Scream, Stooges, Jesus & Mary Chain, Chapterhouse

Super Mo are really thematic outtakes from Mess. They were all love songs and didn't really fit with the spy theme. Same gear set up, but you can see how they are more optimistic than the other tunes.
1. Radiohead
2. Bowie
3. New Order
4. Burial, Sparklehorse
