Spotlight On: Astrobrite

Astrobrite are an American shoegaze/noise pop band that began as a solo project for musician Scott Cortez (of Lovesliescrushing), expanding into a full band in 1993. The band toured and released a number of cassette EPs before going on hiatus in 1997. They returned in 2001 with their first full-length album, the stunning Crush, and have released two more LPs since then. Their sound owes quite a lot to My Bloody Valentine, with the same pop sensibility buried under layers of hazy noise. Check out this gorgeous track from Crush and be prepared to fall in love:
