Stegzy's Music Project

A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Doppelgänger – Curve [#387]

on August 28, 2015

Curve_Doppelganger_CoverWhat we have probably learnt from the music project so far is three fold:

  1. I have a lot of music that is rubbish
  2. I have a lot of music that I “should” like
  3. There is a lot of music that I came late to.

This album highlights the third point.

I came to Curve quite late. I’d never heard of them before 2004 but apparently they had been around for many years. Formed in 1990, the band falls under the Shoegazing, dream pop, alternative rock genres.

It’s the unique sound of Curve I like. The haunting ghostly etheric singing with the wide echoing on the guitar. It reminds me of the out of tune radio one might hear on very late night car journeys.  Awesome stuff but I no longer have the lifestyle where I can listen to the same music over and over again without people (bosses/wives/doctors) complaining that important things (work/playing with cats/hearing) are more important than sitting there with headphones on all day.
