Relay Still Point of Turning
- Words: Steve Marchese
- Label: Bubblecore
During the late '80s and early '90s, while the UK was awash in shoegaze feedback, there was a similar, nascent U.S. movement bubbling underground in places like Detroit and Boston. Now Philly can proudly mark an "X" on the domestic shoegazer map with Relay's second LP. Helmed by ex-Swirlies studio guy Jeff Ziegler, Relay avoids the pratfall of needless noodling, and takes a melodic, almost poppy approach to ambient rock á la Swervedriver or Dinosaur Jr. The result has a déja vu charm-you can sense the ghosts of feedback past, while we're firmly planted in the here and now.
