Landing by Githead is a melding of music into a smooth, steady reliable delivery. With drums and bass providing the solid framework over which the guitars can layer their melodic chimes and accents, atop this rides the almost dispassionate vocals. After several listens it certainly makes me want to check out the record collection for My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Curve, Ride, Stereolab, Bolshoi and a bit of Wire.
