Title - 'Veldisa'
Artist - Echolust

For those not in the know, California-based post-punk shoegaze trio Echolust have just released their quite extraordinary debut album that channels influences from Slowdive to MBV, Jesus And Marry Chain to New Order.

Consisting of veteran musicians Philip Obens, Armond Angeles, and Tony Lee Jackson, the group has earned acclaim from Buzzbands LA, which means that their debut album, Veldisa is already destined to garner a lot of attention in the industry (and deservedly so).

1. '1799'
2. 'Dark Hair Girl'
3. 'Decor Blonde'
4. 'For Least Resistance'
5. 'Cherry Dancer'
6. 'Lotus'
7. 'Electric'
8. 'Zombie Birds'
9. 'Velvet Holiday'
10. 'Doublespeak'
11. 'Veldisa'
12. 'This Blurry Kill'

This refreshingly ambient '80s new wave album begins with guitar-lite frenzy of '1799' before upping the tempo for both 'Dark Hair Girl' and the crushing 'Decor Blonde.' The moodiness of 'For Least Resistance' is then backed by the guitar fuzz dynamite of 'Cherry Dancer' which in turn is followed by my own personal favorite on the album, the poppy 'Lotus.'

The hypnotic synth of ' Electric' is just as good as anything OMD ever created, and that's followed by The Cure-esque vibe of 'Zombie Birds'. Next up on this quite stunning album is the underwater synth swimming of 'Velvet Holiday', the methodical 'Doublespeak', and then the album rounds out with the stoic title track, 'Veldisa' and the upbeat, vivid soundscapes found within the jangly guitar work of 'This Blurry Kill.'
