v/a - yellow loveless / blue loveless
label: high fader
label: electric muse records
my first exposure to the band my bloody valentine came via the video for "only shallow" on 120 MINUTES. at the time i was just starting to expand my musical repertoire outside of the slayers and the metallicas and whanot. what had gotten me hooked was the use of the distorted feedback that had started out the song. to this day it still reminds me of a carnival. it was like the distortion was a member of the band. and then there's that bassline.
this band made me go even further into bands like dinosaur jr and sonic youth and medicine and the jesus and mary chain and and and and....
you get the idea.
LOVELESS turned 25 the other day (on the 4th to be exact).
what we have here are 2 different yet the same interpretations of LOVELESS.
YELLOW comes from japan.
BLUE comes from korea.
in my opinion: YELLOW comes out victorious.
but what do i know.
you don't tell me what i know.
you're not my real dad.
