It's the Rough Trade album of the week!

Somebody from My Bloody Valentine is on it too! Gasp!

Hope Sandoval is the duddest of live performers ever ever ever. I just haven't been able to listen to anything but the first Mazzy Star album since seeing them at Irving Plaza years ago, her mix of listlessness and smugness was so vile.

Just bought it, heard it once.
It's very... slow. Hazily, druggedly languid. All the way through. Pretty, like Vespertine but without the Ice Palace sparkle.

it's terrible, i have heard about half of it on the college station here, dreary, leaden tunes without any hint of inspiration. safe to say colm had little to do with the success of mbv.

seeing how shirley manson has turned into a 2nd-tier hope sandoval- wannabe, just buy the new garbage instead. at least you'll get some trashy r&b "beats" here and there too

obviously if you don't like dreary stuff you won't like this. I wouldn't say it's leaden though, it's got a pretty light, wispy feel to it. Good but not awesome. She does have a nice voice, and she has dropped some of the vocal affectations from mazzy star.

Finally, a new album has been announced. Through The Devil Softly due out Sept. 1.

Cool. I've been listening to the first Mazzy Star and a few tracks off of Bavarian Fruit Bread (On the Low, Suzanne) a lot recently.

Is Colm still on board?

lol "7 years pass" ... Colm is still on board

i think Bavarian Fruit Bread is great, listened to that as much as any mazzy record

tylerw, Thursday, 9 July 2009 01:27 (eight years ago) Permalink

Me too. I was in a cave until 1998 so I didn't get around to listening to Mazzy Star until a few weeks ago. I like it, but yeah, I like Bavarian Fruit Bread just as much.

I've been waiting forever for a new Hope Sandoval album. Will it feature the all star line up on the first solo album? Can't wait to hear it.

I don't think I've played the Bavarian Fruit Bread album since Monday, 5 November 2001 01:00 (7 years ago) tbh.

(7 - or 8 - years? shiiiit)

DavidM, Friday, 14 August 2009 16:58 (eight years ago) Permalink

I've listened to Through The Devil Softly once through, and it's sublime. Not much has changed, but I wasn't wanting a changed. She can keep making dreamy soft music like this. Maybe this album is the folkiest?

'Thinking Like That' has to be my favorite song, sounds like Comus.

three years pass...

Who sang like Hope Sandoval before Hope Sandoval? Cos there sure are a lot of people who sing like her now.

Isn't there a new Mazzy Star album coming out soon? I loved that 2001 solo record, btw.

That's kind of amazing. How have I never heard The Paris Sisters before?

There's a new Hope Sandoval record! Any one excited or heard anything about the sound?

I haven't heard the new album yet but the single with Massive Attack is wonderful

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 08:24 (ten months ago) Permalink

Heard the track with Kurt Vile and I prefer Hope without a vocal companion. Music sounded good though.

Been streaming on NPR for a few days now. It's all fantastic to these ears, esp that nine-minute dreamsong... http://www.npr.org/2016/10/27/499145209/first-listen-hope-sandoval-the-warm-inventions-until-the-hunter

^ Nice, thanks! I love the Burial remix of "Paradise Circus". Perfect track to come down to at the end of the night.

Ross, Thursday, 3 November 2016 16:47 (ten months ago) Permalink

The new album is so good!

Ross, Wednesday, 9 November 2016 18:11 (ten months ago) Permalink

It is good in inverse proportion to the extent that it sounds like the Doors. Listening to it a lot, skipping some tracks regularly.

There's a new EP coming out on Friday too, btw : http://www.hopesandoval.com/new/index.shtml

:) thanks. Huge fan of the last album

Week of Wonders (Ross), Wednesday, 13 September 2017 19:10 (one week ago) Permalink

i like the ep, her voice is still as sexy as ever. i didn't like the last album though which had the effect of a sleeping pill on me. somehow an ep seems to be the right form for her music as a complete album is too long as usually there is not enough variation in between the songs, i find.
