Take a deep breath of the 90’s air and put on this new 7” from Presents For Sally, who seem to have arrived fully formed from the early part of that decade. They really seem to have nailed the indie-pop-rock production touches of the era, and are pretty competent with it too. Wishawaytoday is released by Saint Marie.

‘Wishawaytoday’ is the type of title that could have been used by any shoegazy indie band between 1988 and 1992 before Britpop killed shoegaze with idiocy. But now it’s back back back, baby, and where are Oasis now? Yup.
Aaaanyway, being really old, I’ve heard all this type of stuff before -- but it’s certainly not without merit. It chugs along lazily with a nice melody that you’ll have to remove from your head with an enormous pair of pliers. It has shuffly ‘Loveless’ type drums and scratchy guitars. Reminds me of The Telescopes and of Revolver. Overleaf ‘Hits Like Kisses’ (™ the shoegaze book of songtitles) is a driftier, hazier affair that recalls Slowdive circa ‘Pygmalion’.
