I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Italian duo Schonwald own at least three records: The Cure’s Pornography, Cocteau Twins’ Head Over Heels and My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless.  Melding eery synths, a pounding, reverberating rhythm section and layers of majestic guitar exaltation, they’ve created a wave of gothgaze both haunting and soothing.

Alessandra Gismondi’s vocals just dissipate into their dense fog of sound, a remarkable feat for a mere duo.  Similar to their previous two albums, you’ll feel like you’re floating in the clouds one moment and then tied to a sinking anchor the next.  It’s an exhilarating ride, and a must listen for any fans of the genre.  You can listen to the full album HERE, and be sure to check out their previous two full-lengths.  Just as good!
