On "Let's Get Sick", young German shoegazers the History of Colour TV show they have a way with conjuring up trippy soundscapes.

You know that young German shoegazers the History of Colour TV have a way with conjuring up trippy soundscapes, considering how they seem to transform a plain old rehearsal space into what seems like another dimension. Just check out the video of the extended live version of “Let’s Get Sick”, the leadoff track from their recently released album Emerald Cures Chic Ills. Despite the no-nonsense performance, the band whips up enough reverb that it’s no optical illusion that they look as if they’re actually vibrating, the feedback rippling like heatwaves off asphalt.
  
The History of Colour TV’s new album Emerald Cures Chic Ills is out now on Saint Marie Records.
