Tamaryn, 'The Waves' (Mexican Summer)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Joe Gross

On early recordings, this New Zealand-born/New York-based gothtress exposed her inner Siouxsie Sioux. But with her debut full-length, she relocates to San Francisco, and producer Rex John Shelverton (formerly of screamo stalwarts Portraits of Past and garage-punks the Vue) leans more heavily on a patented 4AD combo of deep-focus guitar wash and remote drums, layering everything into infinity. Tamaryn herself doesn't indulge in too much dream-pop mush mouth, but the lyrics are a distant second to the languid songcraft, which leaves your brain standing on a beach, staring at the sea.
