Product Description

2012 release from the Texas-based Alt-Rock band. The album, produced by Elliott Frazier from the band, was recorded at The Bubble in Austin, Texas and Skylab in Los Angeles in the spring of 2012. Ringo Deathstarr formed in 2007 in their native Austin, Texas channeling influences such as The Cure, The Smiths, Fugazi and The Velvet Underground.

Review

There is a direct link between My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain and Ringo Deathstarr. And it stops at Slowdive Central. If you retain any fondness for those three - and are mentally aroused by a spot of melody-heavy guitar pop - you will adore the 'Starr --The Guardian

It's a shame we do not live in a world in which Ringo Deathstarr is the name of Liam Gallagher's new band. --New Musical Express

If Ringo Deathstarr is following the path of many shoegazing dream pop noise bands I hope they make enough money to keep making music. This album is almost as if they studied the character and evolution of dream shoegaze... combining, reiterating, and morphing into their own. There is this under current of My Bloody Valentine mixed with Lush combined with Single Gun Theory and processed into a Loop entanglement.

Notably, "Drag" has this Single Gun Theory vocal cadence that has eluded much of the feel good spectrum of shoe-gaze. "Fifteen" sounds like a remix of some unreleased version of My Bloody Valentine's Tremolo. Then transiting into "Girls We Know" we are back to the grind that either makes you jump, dance, or settle into some Sonic Youth/MBV sonic bliss.

The whole album moves around within the style without making too much of it -- as if Ringo Deathstarr was in the 90's while being fresh enough in the current Austin scene to play to a wider audience... at least we can hope.

RIYL: MBV, Single Gun Theory, Lush, Spiritualized, Loop, Fleeting Joys, Fonda, Ivy etc.

I have been listening to shoegaze since the early 90s. Love me some MBV, Ride, Slowdive, Swervedriver. And I love the precursors like the Jesus & Mary Chain, Spacemen 3, Pixies, Cocteau Twins. So I really enjoy Ringo Deathstarr.

When taken on its own, I think this album is a little less interesting than Colour Trip. If you have never heard Ringo Deathstarr before, I would get that album instead. If you already have it, then I would recommend getting this one, if nothing else to see how they are progressing.

While Colour Trip seemed to pull from a wide variety of approaches, some tracks fast, some slow, some tracks more pop, others more psychedelic, Mauve seems a little more themed.

But overall, this album feels in-between for me. The first album seemed like young musicians exploring a style of music they love, and pulling out all the best parts to make a great album. On this album, it feels like they are trying to figure out how to take all their influences and turn it into something different, it sounds like they are trying to craft their own voice out of their influences, but they haven't quite gotten their yet.

So, Colour Trip is in my list of favorite shoegaze albums. Mauve is more of a B-string shoegaze album for me, but it makes me interested to see where they go on their next venture. I will definitely keep an eye on Ringo Deathstarr over the next few years. Will they rise to something new and different, the way Loveless came out of years and years of experimentation? Will they fade away into mid-grade noise pop? Hard to say, but I really, really hope they put in the effort to push through to the next level, whatever that is for them.

For a band from Austin, TX (I believe) - they have the JAMC / My Bloody Valentine Sound down. If you like loud shoegaze music, you'll like Ringo Deathstarr. And with a name like that, what's not to like?

I heard their song 'Slack' on KCRW a few weeks ago and quickly looked these guys up. I have yet to delve into the rest of their discography, but this is a solid album. The first four tracks are quick bursts of distortion and intricate drumming, while the fifth track 'Brightest Star' reminds me of a jam session that could easily have been on Sonic Youth's 'Evol.' The rest of the record goes through a variation of ambient shoe-gaze rock and My Bloody Valentine for the new age. I can easily see 'Waste' being what launches Ringo Deathstarr forward into rock stardom.

If you want something that sounds new, compelling, and as if the creators would be happy to play in front of 20 people as they would 20,000, check this out.

Excellent growth from the debut album. Many of the reviews compare this to MBV, but the more obvious reference is Chapterhouse and when Alex's vocals lead they come across as Lushlike or, more recently, some Panda Riot. A solid album from start to finish. The best part is you can hear both the influences of the shoegaze/dream pop scene as well as their hometown of Austin.
