Stare at your shoe's people its Seaspin

Following on in the trend of bands revitalizing the late 80's shoegaze sound in the tradition of My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, Ride and The Jesus and Mary Chain come Los Angeles based Seaspin. Joining the ranks of other revivalist bands such as A Place to Bury Strangers and Love of Diagrams, Seaspin present there noise-laden distorto-pop songs with a more shiny, cleaner vibe. Their vocalist Jennifer Goodridge (previously from Your Enemies Friends) has a pristine, melodic voice that rides high over the distorted, heavily tremelo'd suspended fourth chords of Ronnie Washburn creating that archetypal My Bloody Valentine sound of pretty girl meets dirty but talented stoner guy with too many big muff pedals, but with their own melodic sensibilities of course.

On Dec 2nd, at Bordello in Downtown LA,
Seaspin, Woah Hunx and Little Girls are performing and now doubt it will be a noise and melody extravaganza of awesomeness. So come down, get drunk and get woozy to the sound of swooping chords and low key melodies.

They have a EP entitled Reverser due for release on the 19th of January. Download a tune here
