Mazzy Star - California

Wispy, dissonant, dream-folk - the descriptive terms one might invoke when describing Hope Sandoval and Mazzy Star. MS haven't released a proper LP since 96, when they were reigning high in the acousti-gaze scene, but now they're back! They're new album, Seasons of Your Day will drop in September, but California, the lead single is out now! Hope sounds as breathy and lonesome as ever and David Roback's guitar seems to still be lost in the paisley fog of the 90s. Yet, while this is a very Mazzified tune, there is also an air of the late 60s singer-songwriter era, not unlike Vashti Bunyan or even Karen Carpenter. Check it out, guys!
