iTunes Review

With its 2012 studio album, the Angeleno post-shoegaze trio Sky Parade intersects Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s whisper-sung aloofness with The Dandy Warhols’ penchant for infusing dream-pop with indie-disco. Boasting an impressive 20 songs, Trails of Light plays like a double album, starting with “When I Rise,” an artful concoction of acoustic guitar strumming, electric guitar feedback, and string arrangements with simple lines intertwining into three-part vocal harmonies. The hard-panned tremolo guitar and Jason Pierce–inspired cooing of “Hold Me Till I Die” reveals that frontman Tommy Dietrick may have grown up with Spacemen 3 and Telescopes albums in his record collection. A pounding, four-on-the-floor beat and pulsing bass blend with heavily affected guitars to make an Anglophile anthem out of the standout cut “I Should Be Coming Up (But I Keep Coming Down).” “We Should Be Lovers” foregoes subtlety in courtship for a confectionary tribute to britpop, while “Love Is Forever” looks back on BRMC’s Howl for that balanced blend of folk rock and '60s adoration that recalls The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s love for tambourines.

Liked These Tracks The First Time Around

I loved the expansive psychedelia of Sky Parade from the first time I heard them back in '08. Bought every release and thought they sounded rich and full as they were. I have no idea why they bothered re-mastering the tracks. The only difference I hear is that they're brighter and, well, louder. In any case, check out Sky Parade if you like bands such as The Dandy Warhols, Stones Roses, Chamaleons UK, and such. Mind you, they don't sound like these incredible bands but you can hear their influence.
