This year, SlyVinyl was introduced to a remarkable Russian 5-piece ofÂ dreamweavers and psychedelic reeversÂ calledÂ Pinkshinyultrablast. Â We fell in love instantly, and they’ve reciprocated the affection with a sprawling 2-tracker sure to tickle your vibrating viscera.
The title track is a perfect testament to Pinkshiny’s giftÂ for seamlessly weaving shoegaze and dream pop into a genreless, formless jaunt. Â It’s an ecstatic, joyful, alien-like celebration of sound. Â Imagine a battle of the bands betweenÂ Ride and Cocteau Twins, throwing the mic back and forth to each other and melding into one body. Â Wowee zowee, it’s so good.
Club Ac-30 will be honoring them with the vinyl pressing and, according to our Pslychedelic Sindre Ernst, their waxÂ “is always the sickest.” Â I’d take his word for it and shell out the extra yankee bucks to get this thing shipped overseas. Â Pinkshinyultrablast, wherever and whenever they came from, will surely be the missing chainlink to world peace and enlightenment. Â That’s worth a $20, ain’t it?
