Broken Water: Peripheral Star 12"
Latest 12" from this Olympia, WA band. Five songs with a bit more of a rock feel than some of their other stuff, but still with lush, deliberate instrumentation and a delicate sense of composition. Though there are vocals, they aren't the centerpiece, and I can see someone into post-rock or the more guitar-oriented, artsy end of shoegaze digging this hard. That was probably a terrible description, but regardless of the reference points Broken Water's music is ambitious, interesting, and powerful. Perennial Records
