Aftergloam- Anatomy of an Elegy EP

Aftergloam is a quartet from the outskirts of Los Angeles that play slow creeping, psych-laced shoegaze. I came across their latest Anatomy of an Elegy EP while sampling Lolipop Record's roster and was struck by their balance. A lot of bands in the genre always have one overblown element, but Aftergloam blend their fuzz, feedback, and downtrodden vocals cleanly, allowing the melodies to float on the surface rather than bubble up from below.

It's a refreshing listen. Check out the samples and grab the cassette from Lolipop.
