Song of the day

""Hello Shadow", by Pluramon.

The album this song comes from, "Dreams Top Rock", has been very close to the top of The List ever since I bought it, unheard, on the strength of recommendations, first by Marcello Carlin, and then by Oren at Metropolis Books in Melbourne, back in the days that they also sold music. (It probably wouldn't sell many copies just on the strength of the cover art.)

This song, and several others on the album, feature the voice (it is its own adjective) of Julee Cruise, you know, her from the Twin Peaks soundtrack (whoops, it's D*v*d L*n*h again) and various records bearing the name Angelo Badalamenti. (You might remember a song called "Floating".) Musically, it occupies the space between My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins. Which is possibly a fairly narrow space.

If we are going to be talking about "maximalism", this shit is pretty maximal.
