Blame Me with Ghost Lake - An Interview

Uma ótima surpresa diretamente do submundo dos bons sons são os estadunidenses do Ghost Lake.

Um Ep sedutoramente brutal, atendendo pelo nome de Tender é o cartão de visitas para algo como um shoegazer beirando o slowcore, em determinados momentos alto e possuído, já em outros sutil e hipnótico, uma química que o Ghost Lake soube utilizar com extrema elegância.

E que venha o debute I Feel Everything, pois se seguir os passos do single Blame Me, será um daqueles álbuns pra ser chamado de predileto da casa.
