In recent years the shoegaze label has been adorned by many bands and while appropriately falling under that umbrella whether it is modern recording techniques, cross pollination of other music styles, different types of effects pedals employed I have found that very few of these bands really capture the sonic aesthetic of the bands that made me fall in love with the genre in the first place. That is where Austin, TX based Soda Lilies succeed is that the sounds captured on their cassette "Love Cemetery Tapes" hearkens to a time when the sounds of My Bloody Valentine and Swirlies were defining a genre. "Love Cemetery Tapes" is eight tracks of hazy, tremolo bar bending waves of distorted guitar sounds mixed through awash of driving drums and layered, hushed vocal breezes. The sounds that Soda Lilies make evoke a warm feeling not only in the nostalgia of bringing the listener closer to a shoegaze-y experience of yore but because the sounds ebb and flow in such a manner. "Love Cemetery Tapes" is limited to an edition of 50 black cassettes packaged in a numbered full color j-card.
