The opening beat of L' Spaerow's opening song Chance leaves you expecting a ripoff of Lush's Undertow before L' Spaerow frontman, Lucid Records founder, and ex-Braid guy Chris Broach (with the aid of bandmates Adam Johnson and Kenneth Boksa) careens into a song and, ultimately, album that shows the depth and creativity of some of the finer reverb-heavy acts of the shoegazer heyday. It is a stunning work though Broach is noticeably careful to never let his vocals get submerged among the swirling guitars and layered percussion. As per shoegazer rules, playing a single song never delivers the effect of the full album; in L' Spaerow's case, that is surely for the best. - Patrick Masterson
