Available in Europe only, this six-track EP, entitled No Generation, is cut from extra tracks from Kindling’s previous full length album. A genuinely crafted collection of dream-pop and indie-rock that uses rather technical drumming and the most laid back vocals to give us an overall pleasurable listening experience. Available on Vinyl LP.

The '90s revival continues but unlike this week's despairing Splashh release this is the sort of honest to goodness music you remember from the '90s where shoegaze met grunge and guitars were very loud indeed. Kindling are an actual band playing together and so have their dynamics all set. They are very loud indeed and singer Gretchen's voice is lost somewhere in the melee. Their influences are obvious - Superchunk, Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth but they play with gusto - the drummer is an absolute battering ram pounding away like a man with a point to prove.
In time I hope they learn to add light and shade to their work as for the moment it is one super intense blast - they have the noisy bits down pat but relent from the noise would make the noisier bits even better. Not pulling up any trees for the moment but this promises much and will appeal to anyone whose ears haven't bled to death at My Bloody Valentine gigs over the years. Get in on the ground floor before they are snorted up by the nu-gaze brigade.
