Tender Age: Disappear here (Ep, Sinis Recordings, 2016)

La continuación al sublime Get high/Always publicado el pasado otoño es este melancólico Ep, que continúa la línea iniciada por aquel pero tomando también partido por sendas algo más experimentales. Contiene, además, dos versiones de la época más inocente del Rock.

“Recorded, mixed and produced by the band and Eric Sabatino, “Disappear Here EP” is an aural demonstration of the bands more experimental tendency. Intended to be heard as a continuous series of newly recorded material, the EP contains 3 new originals and 2 wild interpretations of classic pop-constructs, as processed through the fuzzed-up and tangled-guitar melodies instinctive to the 5-piece. Additional surprise material weaves in and out of the tracks, sewing together a seamless experience for equal factions of bedroom-pop dwellers and basement-boombox enthusiasts. The lead single, “Lowers” finds the band treading the territory of last year’s single with a penchant for further improvisation and blown out saccharine hooks. Fans of 90’s-era DGC delicacies and the Deal sisters’ playful excursions in sonic reduction will find much to rejoice over. This is the escape, strap on the headphones and close the door behind you” (Press)

Tender Age: Get High / Always (7″, Sinis Recordings, 2015)

a1280622748_16

Get high/Always se trata del penúltimo lanzamiento de los Shoegazers Tender Age, grupo de Portland que milita en la facción más ensoñadoramente Dream del Shoegaze de guitarras. Sublime.

“Entitled “Get High”, the new lead track finds Tender Age nodding to the pioneers of the 80’s and 90’s Creation Records explosion. With a three guitar onslaught, the band makes every effort to bury the undeniable melodic hooks behind a wall of sound. However, while succeeding in blanketing fuzz, echo and distortion atop six-string melodies, the end result backfires in the greatest way possible – the hooks become an all-encompassing sunkiss on the entirety of the song. On the flipside, “Always”, Leonardo and Tardif take center-stage with long-drawn vocal laments that overlap and harmonize at points, bringing to mind the most beautifully lulling moments of Chapterhouse entwined in the rapturous rolling-reverb of Mazzy Star and Black Tambourine. The two tracks perfectly capture the duality in Tender Age’s nature – a disruptively-spirited complexion (“Get High”) behind an achingly beautiful heart (“Always”). Calling the double A-side single “seasonally appropriate” is an understatement. They’ve written arguably the perfect coupling of a spirited Summer-anthem (“Get High”) and heartbreaking Autumn-lament (“Always”)
