Tetrezene N.Door.Fin

The dense lush melodies from this Toronto quartet’s debut album will leave you stunned and mellow for hours. An must-have for insomniacs, getting up to hit play again is about as productive as you can get after experiencing this fantastic debut. How they manage to create these lazy sounds without nodding off at the controls is beyond me. Unlike traditional shoe-gazing music, Tetrezene avoid rude awakening guitar noise. You can safely let yourself go and not be awakened to a nightmarish feedback squall. Instead, they opt to fill spaces with the delicate vocals of Shannon du Hasky backed up by Camille Gratton. These two women must be related to the Sandman — no one before has mellowed me out so much that I have to lie down. (Independent)
