Sad Bastard music by THE INSECT GUIDE

photo by: wayne fox

It is no surprise that I enjoy “shoegaze” music. If there are tiny hints of The Jesus & Mary Chain, Spiritualized, etc I typically dig it. Case in Point: THE INSECT GUIDE. The band consists of a singer, guitar player and a laptop so I’m thinking that their tour van is pretty light. The Insect Guide are drone and fuzzy as their song “Liline” from their first album 6ft In Love (track below) clearly displays some decent pop hook to it. The female vocals definitely match the reverb heavy guitars similar to Blonde Redhead as you can hear in the track “Down from Here” from the new album Dark Days & Nights released via Dead Penny Records. Overall this is a nice UK gem that your local college radio station will be rotating pretty heavily soon!.
