There’s no reason to wait another two decades for the next My Bloody Valentine opus to get a satisfying fix of shoegazing harmonies, not after you give up-and-comers Panda Riot a listen.

There’s no reason to wait another two decades for the next My Bloody Valentine opus to get a satisfying fix of shoegazing harmonies, not after you give up-and-comers Panda Riot a listen. PopMatters is premiering Panda Riot’s “Amanda in the Clouds”, a syrupy sweet, densely melodic soundscape that’ll have you flashing back to forgotten Amerindie dream-pop favorites like Velocity Girl and the Swirlies. The opening track off Panda Riot’s first full-length Northern Automatic Music (Saint Marie), “Amanda in the Clouds” sets you up in the right mindset for the head rush of an album that follows.


Northern Automatic Music is out on February 19.

This is a great record start to finish, like falling into a safety net, only to find the net is electrified. Oh, and you love the charge.
