In 2000, ex-Mazzy Star vocalist Hope Sandoval joined with drummer Colm O'Ciosoig of My Bloody Valentine to form Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions. The project retained the laid-back slowcore sound of Mazzy Star, and featured Sandoval's sensuous, hypnotic voice. However, it replaced the psychedelic leanings that Mazzy Star were known for with spare, subtle arrangements that reinforced Sandoval's gentle vocal style. In 2000, Sandoval issued her first EP with the Warm Inventions, At the Doorway Again, and followed it up with a debut full-length, Bavarian Fruit Bread, a year later. Eight years after their debut, the pair returned with their sophomore effort, Through the Devil Softly. It would be another seven years -- during which time both Mazzy Star and My Bloody Valentine made comebacks -- before they would release their third album. Produced by the duo and recorded in a fort in Ireland, the record included contributions from Kurt Vile and Berkeley street musician Michael Masley. Until the Hunter was released on their own Tendril Tales label in late 2016. ~ Stacia Proefrock & Neil Z. Yeung
