RIYL: Catherine Wheel, Chapterhouse, The Telescopes
Label: Wichita Recordings
Widely considered one of¬†the most important bands in the shoegaze movement, Ride’s pioneering psychedelic tremor helped redefine rock and roll, reshaped Creation Records’ legacy and ushered in the UK sound¬†for decades to come. ¬†Their last full-length, Tarantula, was released in 1996, so needless to say…a new album from Ride is a big deal. ¬†It also makes a lot of sense. ¬†Shoegaze’s second coming has been upon us for a few years and legions of new indie bands owe their livelihood to Ride and their fellow torchbearers.
If you haven’t heard their newest single Charm Assault yet, check that out below and grab a copy of the LP on red wax after the ‘buy’ link. ¬†They’ve packaged the record up with a t-shirt as well, and that can be purchased HERE. ¬†Test presses, limited to just 200, can be purchased as well if you scroll down. ¬†Those will be gone quick.
