Album: Medicine, To The Happy Few (Captured Tracks)


A big legend in small circles, Medicine were the first American band signed to Creation Records and were, according to Planet Pitchfork, 'the American answer to My Bloody Valentine'.

Eighteen years on, the landscape's changed but the sound hasn't. While this may once have been filed under 'shoegaze', now we can call it 'noisy dream pop' and just wade in its wash of guitars. Gentle songs played at 11. Works for me!
