Thoughts:

Brooklyn’s Peel Dream Magazine only formed in 2018, but they sound like they’ve mined the sounds of 90s bands like My Bloody Valentine and Stereolab. On the one hand, the lack of originality is frustrating.  I could just listen to Loveless and Emperor Tomato Ketchup if I wanted to.  On the other hand, those 90s bands are making anything new either and I love escaping in the dense swirls and minimalist  sounds of Peel Dream Magazine’s shoegaze  guitars and dreamy synths.
