Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP pressing. 2010 release, the explosive third album from the NY-based five-piece that sees them stepping out onto the dancefloor, without leaving their guitars and dreamy effects behind! After building a loyal following in the independent Shoegaze scene Soundpool have enhanced their palette and, in turn, crafted a Pop masterpiece. The nine songs are infectious, overflowing with strong bass hooks, driving beats, shimmering guitars, and Kim Fields' captivating, ethereal voice. The LP comes with a special download code to download MP3s of the entire LP.

Soundpool's third album Mirrors In Your Eyes takes the shimmering wall of 90s style shoegaze sound, infuses it with some dreampop and then slams a pulsating disco/house beat underneath.

It's a welcome change from their last two albums which were beautifully crafted straight forward shoegaze. Mirror's take that sound and elevates it to the dancefloor.

Who knew shoegaze could be so danceable.

Reccommended for fans of shoegaze who are looking for something a bit outside of the genre.

This undisguised Lush tribute band has, to a certain extent, followed Lush's progression as well, which ended up in a final burst of pop music, rather ungracefully ending a fabulous run of unique music. This stuff isn't quite the same, no "Shake Baby Shake" here, the shoegaze form is essentially maintained. It's like early Lush if they added dance beats, cranked the synths and hired the ex-Bananarama singers to sing through gauze.

I'm not sure if I hate it or like it, but it is different, kind of like the most danceable Delerium with swirling guitars, or maybe An April March with a techno backbone. I came late to this, and I'm going to have to live with it for awhile. So far I find it helps to crank the volume way up, and I can imagine this would sound great in a club about two AM with a load of e in the system, it's absolutely seamless and relentless, just right for trance dancing. In that sense, at least, their instincts were correct, if you're going to do something like this, keep the hammer down and don't let up.

Interesting, got to give them credit for expanding the form, I'll keep listening and maybe I'll get it. Check it out if you're a shoegazer, I think it's a required listen, if only to be informed.

I like shoegaze and I've liked Soundpool's other releases, but when I saw this described as including dance beats mixed in with the shoegaze I wasn't quite sure how I'd like it. In fact, I think it works really well. I find this album to include very positive, even bliss-inducing, music. Out of all past shoegaze I'm familiar with, it reminds me most of Chapterhouse's Whirlpool.

If you like shoegaze and give this a chance, I suspect you'll like it.
