As mentioned, dreampop veterans Lorelei play Mercury Lounge tonight (2/27). The show is also a record release party for NYC's Dead Leaf Echo, whose debut album, Thought & Language, is out next week. It was produced by John Fryer who, in addition to being one of two constants in 4AD legends This Mortal Coil, has worked on such alt-rock touchstones as Depeche Mode's Speak & Spell, Cocteau Twins' Head Over Heels, Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine, and Chapterhouse's Whirlpool. If your shoegaze taste veers towards Slowdive, you should check them out if you haven't already. You can stream "Memorytrace" and check out the video for "Kingmaker" below.

Tickets are still available for tonight's show which is part of a tour for Dead Leaf Echo. After their stint with Lorelei, they'll continue on towards the beast that is SXSW. All tour dates are listed below.

"If your shoegaze taste veers towards Slowdive, you should check them out if you haven't already."

Not to split hairs but I think DLE is a little more in the Pale Saints or Kitchens Of Distinction side of things.

@1:29... i can definitely hear KoD, the shimmery-er side of them. Pale Saints (who i LOVE) i don't hear that much personally, but your mileage may vary.

This is one of the best songs that I have heard in a long time. Dam I think I am in heaven whenever I hear this. Its bands like this that should be played not this bull shit that seems to be in now. I just ordered this CD off of Ebay yesterday. Shogaze/ambient for ever. My bloody Valentine would be proud and jelouse at the same time. Please come to Chicago and keep making more kick ass music. Beautiful.
