Ringo Sparkles on the Deathstar(r)
Just when you thought Ringo Deathstarr couldn't get any more MBV, they get all Sparkler on your arse. But this is actually a step back in time in more ways than one - Sparkler (out on Club AC30) is a collection of RD tracks from back in 2009, before their "breakthrough" debut of earlier in the year, Colour Trip. It's not brilliant - it is clear that there isn't much in the way of ideas in these tracks, it is all pretty embryonic - yet they are good tracks in their own right, and a nice prologue to the band. Plus, I like me some MBV, but I also like a good MBV imitation - Im sure Shields doesn't mind either.
Grab Sparkler here. Its well worth it if you like your shoegaze predictable yet loud and luscious to boot - which, to be honest, I do!
