In my sloppiest criminal efforts to download the new Air album, I found myself with a copy of Air Formation's Daylight Storms. Whether it be My Bloody Valentine, Ride, The Jesus and Mary Chain, or more recently, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness, shoegazer-type rock bands have always appealed to the daydreaming depths of my mind. Listening to Sussex's Air Formation temporarily transforms life into a Sofia Coppola movie, as time tends to slow down with songs this drenched in reverb and atmosphere. Maybe it's because it reached a cool -25 today with the wind chill or perhaps it's because I'm feeling particularly contemplative, but either way this brand of slow-building guitar rock is suiting me well at the moment.
By the way, Air's new release Pocket Symphony looks promising but I've yet to hear it. Perhaps the next post?
