01.02.2014 — “Dress” by Kigo

Kigo — Chance EP

If you only listen to one song tonight, make it “Dress” by Kigo (2013, from the Chance EP).

Kigo is a one-man shoegazing recording project based in Brisbane, Australia. By day, he’s know as DP Pearce. In 2013, he released a bunch of EPs and a full-length album called so lost now. I had never heard of Kigo until today, when I was reading a few “Best of 2013” lists. For example, this one over at the tumblr account of Shoegazingaddict.

All of the EPs and the album are available via bandcamp at the price of “name your price”.

Tonight’s song was named the #1 shoegaze song of 2013 by the aforementioned tumblr writer, and the album so lost now was his #4 shoegaze album of 2013, so I figured that I better check things out.

This is that song:

Wave after wave of gloriously warped and shifted loops.
