Russian shoegazers Pinkshinyultrablast excerpt two tracks from their recent Everything Else Matters album for this natty little transparent blue 7” on Club AC30. Big washes of guitar swathed over everything, as you’d expect, but the vocalist’s falsetto and the jumpy tunes stand out.

Had no idea what the hell to expect here but on sky blue vinyl we have a heavyweight 7" containing the latest incarnation of the scene that refuses to kill itself - shoegaze. It's a lovely bright, glorious and airy tune with propulsive percussion, shimmering walls of guitar fuzz, a jaunty synth line and sweet impenetrable ethereal cooing trailing off into grungier sky-shaving passages towards its conclusion.
It doesn't say a great deal, has no grand message, doesn't pretend to be anything but a blast of celestial indie euphoria. It's also beautifully produced and I like the weird sci-fi sleeve design. Considering most Club AC30 gear leaves me feeling angry or listless at its mediocrity this band are a pleasure to listen to. Whether the album fares as well or contains such another breezy and enjoyable anthem I'm yet to find out.
