Dreamy New Dead Leaf Echo
Man, this song is definitely a stunner. Clearly I’ve enjoyed previous Dead Leaf Echo tunes, as we all should, but this one really ups the ante. Usually the group surround their songs with this blossoming wall of noise, but here you find that peeled back, however slightly, to reveal a tight rhythm section and guitars that seemingly circle around the vocals. They fill in some extra textural notes via synth work and distortion as the song progresses, but I’m still grinning with the immediate charm this number offers. Their new LP, Beyond.Desire, will be released this Friday via PaperCup Music.
