Album Review

Morr Music's generous 2002 Slowdive tribute, Blue Skied an' Clear, did more than just officially induct shoegaze into the realm of synth pop influence; it also hinted at an entirely new direction for the label, one cemented largely by this debut from the anonymous Guitar. In the context of Morr's back catalog, it's certainly a departure — where the label's prior releases had only ever sideways-referenced shoegaze's conceits, Sunkissed practically marinades in them, often to the point where it feels less like an experiment in useful cross-pollination and more like another naked homage. This is mostly problematic because the compositions themselves aren't particularly compelling — never a fatal flaw in music like this, but certainly one more easily overlooked in the presence of any engaging dialogue between the Morr and shoegaze aesthetics.
