kordan - the longing

sometimes i think.... isn't there enough shoegaze stuff around for now?.... but then some new band comes up with an album and literally blows me off my chair. exactly this happend to me when i first listened to kordan. this brooklyn 3-piece manage to mix shoegaze with electronic music in a nearly perfect way. other than bands such as kyte and maps, it's less dreamy but yet so more powerful. at some parts it seems they had a sip on a goblet filled with manchester rave, oldskool shoegaze and joy division ingredients. the masterpiece "mirror" (see the video below) could become one of my all time favourite songs, since it's pure ear-orgasm. so is the whole album.... okay and that's why i need to stop writing and continue listening.... for the third time in a row. wow, just wow!!!
