by Timothy Gabriele

26 May 2011

 

The lonely organ and the disembodied voice have been staples of independent music since Suicide, but rarely have a group sounded so dandy about his isolation as Wet Hair’s Shawn Reed and Ryan Garbes do here. The video continues the vein of hypnagogic/chillwave’s psychedelic YouTube descrambling, which is really having a hard time finding a way to get old. “Labor of Love” is off a split with goth-leaning Naked on the Vague off of the Iowa-based Night People label.
