8/10 Phil 17 July 2008
Also on the Quince label is another decent CD of shoegaze inspired indie ala Creation 1989. This one is called Half Dreaming and it's a comp of loads of shoegaze bands from the far East. I'm not talking about Hull here either, I mean Malaysia, Korea, Indonesia, Japan, China, Hong Kong and The Philippines. That's well east. Weast... The first time I heard this it sounded like loads of different bands... the opener sounds like The Boo Radleys, the 2 track sounds like Lush... other tracks sound like Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Filmstars, Kitchens of Distinction, Moose, MBV (of course) and probably lots more bands I've forgotten about. It works surprisingly well and if you shut your eyes and forget what you're listening to it will take you back in time to when the NME was good and things didn't seem to be quite as shit as they are now. It's very well done and authentically played/ put together. I'm particularly fond of the Perfect Angel track called Cataclysmic which is Phil Leigh's hottest record in the world in the today. Isn't Zane Lowe a tosser.
