"SINGLE'S CRUISE 01.18.19"

"Withering" is excellent shoegaze that captures the effusive textural shadings and blurred inputs of the best of genre and includes a solo towards the end of the track that pushes the genre’s other thrilling tendency – exploratory and ambitious guitar playing – into the red. It’s a studied and subdued track that belies the age of the producers. - Tome to the Weather Machine


In brief, this column will gather 10 present-day shoegaze/dream pop (and around) tracks you should experience and very much likely won’t find anywhere else on the web, at least as a whole! So, pick up your glide guitar and relish the wall of sound. - Last Day Deaf

"The best of shoegaze and dreampop"



Clairvoyant Chasm is a band comprised of Marc LeVan (guitar/synth/vocals) Julie Falvey (bass/vocals) Vasco Madrid (drums) from Columbia, South Carolina that recently released Dreams of Tomorrow. The band leans towards atmospheric rock and incorporates genres such as shoegaze and alternative.

​The band opens with “Riptide” and quickly go into shoegaze mode bringing to mind bands like M83 and Slowdive. It’s a fairly catchy song and I knew exactly where this song was trying to go aesthetically and the feeling it was trying to impart.

Next up is “The Sun Always Sets.” I liked what was going on from the beat to the atmosphere. That being said the mix is so narrow and lo-fi it wasn’t doing any favors to the tones, textures and shades that this song could have had.

“I Saw the Sky” has its moments and is a little more aligned with a band like Real Estate while “Withering” felt more like straight shoegaze. “I Won't Share You” is a cover song by The Smiths but again the mix needed a lot of work. The band has some success with “Dreams of Tomorrow” and “A New Day.”

As an engineer myself the most important thing the band needs to do is work with an engineer/producer who can come a lot closer to the aesthetic the band is going for. The recording quality they have right now is extremely lo-fi and really not competitive with something you would expect from a studio. I couldn’t understand most of the lyrics and the mixes in general have too many issues for the songs’ potential to be heard.

There are some good ideas, along with some well written songs. There seems to a good amount of overall talent as well.I think there is some potential for the band but they fall into a case of wait and see for now. - Divide and Conquer


Still working on that hot first release.
