Captcha Records, the label that's brought great works from Epsilons, Ga'an, Thee Oh Sees, and Ty Segall, has stumbled on Guadalajara's dirty little secret in the form of Lorelle Meets the Obsolete.
The Mexican duo sear their way through a heady mix of shoegaze and psychedelia that wobbles when you think it's going to run straight into the foam and scorches just when you're least expecting it to catch fire. The band has a way of wrapping the two genres (and the edges of quite a few more) around their guitar strings and pulling them tight into knots, only to have those same knots disappear in a puff of black smoke. Their On Welfare album is a perfect soundtrack to humid rains, streaked with heat and swelled with the promise of relief. -Andy French, Raven Sings the Blues
