They say that every day is dying
Just like the sun
Before Mazzy Star there was Opal. Before Opal there was Rain Parade but that is another story. And before Hope Sandoval there was Kendra Smith. She sings on this gorgeous song from the late 80s. The Paisley Underground movement from the West coast to which Opal’s guitarist David Roback belonged was just fading out. It had put the focus back from the synthesizers to the guitar. There are few songs which marry melody and guitar distortion as successful as this one. Trust me, listening to this is way better than doing acid. And additionally the risk of a bad trip is zero.
