MBV Release New Album (Finally) + Other New Music Releases and News
If you haven't heard the news yet (you might be living on the moon), 90's shoegaze genius Kevin Shields and his band My Bloody Valentine have finally, after 22 years, put the finishing touches on their new album m.b.v. The album was released on midnight Saturday (UK time) on their website and after initial problems due to their website crashing, I was finally able to download and listen the LP before midnight (EST). The album is absolutely spectacular and should be deemed mandatory listening for all shoegaze fans.. You can purchase the the album here or listen to the entire record on youtube.

And speaking of My Bloody Valentine, up and coming Canadian/British artist Rachel Zeffira has recorded a beautiful acoustic cover of MBV's To Here Knows When for her debut album The Deserters which will be released on March 12th. See the studio recorded video for the track below:
