Memories Of Another Future is the debut album of She Drew The Gun, released last year and now released again in expanded form! This version adds three new tracks to the record, meaning you get more soulful pop and personal lyrics for your buck than ever before. Reissued by Skeleton Key Records on CD and on LP (which itself comes with a CD).
7/10 Robin Staff review, 16 March 2017
It’s the afterparty! She Drew the Gun already released this record in 2016 but they’re putting it out again for a year just as garbage. With a couple more tracks for your money (it’s three, but I rounded it down to a couple instead of up to a few), you can now revisit ‘Memories of Another Future’ and its world of spaciously indented, soul-tinged, psych-lilting pop music. Listen and get clean.
Of all things, I forgot how easy on the ear this record is: its melodies slide into place due to a bacteria-free production, and its arrangements prove themselves patient as day, with “Since You Were Not Mine” introducing its synth figures and extra guitar slidings in the epitomy of due course. “If You Could See” sees them handling distortion with all the necessary precautions: safety gloves, goggles and an acoustic guitar exist around the trembling gruel.
There’s the odd fret-sliding solo proclamation, as on “Pebbles”, but the record’s more fun when it’s flashy and devoted to a groove. The sly, shuddering rhythms of “I’m Not Alone” combine wonderfully with some shiny harmonies and the triumphant lil’ rocker “Pit Pony” proves again their ability to straddle a noisier element with the easiest of presentation. All in all, it’s been a year, and She Drew the Gun have still got exactly what they had before: it.
