Meow Meow • Snow Gas Bones • Devil In The Woods
There is very
heavy immediate resemblance in Meow Meow's music to The Flaming Lips. I should
also mention the influence of Kevin Shield's (My Bloody Valentine) guitar work,
though the influences do not degrade the music by tagging it as derivative.
In fact, some of Kirk Hellie's super-effected guitar (and/or keyboard?) solos
are groundbreaking, absolutely fucking amazing. There are a lot of secretly
pretty melodies and harmonies as well, filling out this great album to the
brim. Occasionally, the guitar work gets a little precocious, and should step
away from center stage, but this is only rarely the case. Good luck, guys.
