Feedback To The Future





Now THIS is what Iím talking about. If you pay attention to any of my ramblings (does anyone, though? Bueller? Anyone?), you may remember that the early ë90s shoegaze scene is one of my favorite musical movements. Just my luck, then, that this compilation has come to my attention. Feedback To The Future features ten of the finest representations of those glorious days. Revolverís ìHeaven Sent A Angel,î kicks off the festivities and before the album has completed, endless guitar wash and shuffly drumbeats have been added by Ride (ìLike a Daydreamî), Adorable (ìSunshine Smileî), Swervedriver (ìRave Downî), Lush (ìDe-Luxeî), and future Mojave 3 members Slowdive, who chime in with their finest moment, ìCatch The Breeze.î The compilation was meant to include My Bloody Valentineís ìTo Here Knows When,î ìFrozenî by Curve, Chapterhouseís ìIn My Arms,î and ìMemory Babeî by The Boo Radleys, but there were problems in getting the clearance and the tracks sadly do not feature. Regardless, Feedback To The Future is an almost perfect snapshot of the era when effects pedals galore and vocals mixing with instruments to provide a wall of rushing sound reigned supreme.
