Mazzy Star

After years of avoiding it, I finally get what the appeal is with this band. The twangy disconnect is like the Velvet Underground at their most meandering. Or Pink Floyd from their soundtrack era. It comes at you as if you’re in a haze. Its blissful, really.

So it might be best described as junkie music, but it works when you’re dog tired and in the same sort of emotional disconnect from a long day’s work.  Sometimes, it works to just slow down and take care.

I’m starting with their first album as I listen to the band for the first, proper time. I highly recommend taking some time to stop and wander though the sonic fog with them.
