Lorelle Meets The Obsolete Corruptible Faces
9/10 Mike Staff review, 21 March 2013
The 2011 debut LP of Guadalajara’s Lorelle Meets The Obsolete passed right under our radars here at Norman until their stellar contribution to the impossibly in-demand ‘Psych For Sore Eyes’ 2x7” gave them a little bit of extra exposure. Now we not only have copies of that debut, but also their brand new offering ‘Corruptible Faces’. Rather marvellous it is too.
From a base of dreampop and krautrock influences, LMTO agitate swirling walls of ethereal sound, fuzzy guitars and reverbed vocals drifting lazily around one another as the crisp, metronomic rhythm section keeps pushing ever onwards and upwards. Not only is it a superbly realised aesthetic, taking in the slow-burning psychedelia of Spacemen 3 and the murky post-punk post-modernism of The KVB and mixing in something altogether grittier, treblier and noisier than either of those.
What really sets this album apart, though, is that the songs are all superb - the pacing, the melodies, the arrangements; it’s all done so thoughtfully and with such a clarity of vision that it’s hard not to be instantly sucked into their weird, dreamy, trebly alternate universe of psychedelic post-punk pop. Recommended!

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
