Bridgetown #89


Reighnbeau's sophomore release for Bridgetown serves as an adventurous contrast to the sparsity and silence that dominated 2012's "Ashes." On "Friends," Bryce Hample twists the methods of shoegaze and slowcore into softer, acoustic-based miniatures. The result is a unique and captivating collection of songs that embrace quiet moments with a dynamic liveliness. The warmth of plucked nylon strings, breathy vocals and sparse drumming have a distinctly organic nature; a refreshing escape from the typical effect pedal overload commonly associated with shoegaze.
