On April 3rd, get ready for the second coming of Jesus and Mary Chain.
The band is Sister Vanilla, featuring ex-Jesus And Mary Chain luminaries Jim Reid, William Reid, and Ben Lurie with Jim and William’s sister Linda on vocals. It's nice to have this kind of sound back, and done well, as I crank the scuzzy vibe over my speakers.
This marks an important milestone for the Reid Bros, who seem to have patched up old wounds to take on this new record, Little Pop Rock. They can actually record in the same room again! Not to mention, who isn't buzzed about the Jesus and Mary Chain reunion at Coachella? I'm betting you won't see them walk off the stage after 10 minutes of feedback.
Not only does the obvious "Chain influence" bleed through on many tracks, but it also reminds you of the other masters in their genre. The likes of Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine come to mind, while listening to a track like "Jamcolas." I'm digging on the added element of Sister Linda on vocals. It puts these tracks at another level. Check them out.
