Shoegaze Upon The Wall Of Noise: My Bloody Valentine's 'Loveless'

On this week's episode, we take a deep dive into shoegaze and the album that laid the foundation for the genre: My Bloody Valentine's 1991 album "Loveless". Loveless oozes a sonic balm that first embraces and then softly pulverizes the frantic stress of life;  a challenging storm of bent pitch, undulating volume and fractured tempos.
