Whirr - Pipe Dreams (Redux) LP

12" LP - $15.00

free w/ LP purchase


Whirr's first full-length LP, remixed and remastered for a more dynamic sound, with a fresh look to match--transparent blue vinyl and all-new jacket design.  This album is the indie punx vertex to Deafheaven's metal angle (Roads To Judah) and Nothing's post-emo/hardcore corner (Guilty Of Everything), forming the Holey Trinity of the New Wave of Shoegaze.  Common denominator Nick Bassett held rank in all three groups;  the Whirr mainstay played guitar on Deafheaven's seminal album and has since joined Nothing on bass.  Pipe Dreams was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (who wore the same hats on Deafheaven's Judah and Sunbather).

Short 'n' sweet review of the original Pipe Dreams LP:  Dreamy fem vox weep from a swirl of 'verbed-out gravitational waves.  Oaktown shoegaze revivalists wit attitudes.
