Lightfoils - 'Hierarchy' (album stream) (Premiere)

There's nothing lightweight about neo-shoegazers Lightfoils on their new album, Hierarchy.

There's nothing lightweight about Lightfoils, not considering the heavy-lidded dream-pop the Chicago group creates on its new album Hierarchy. Sure, there are some atmospheric wisps of melody, mostly courtesy of Jane Zabeth's vocals, but Lightfoils' neo-shoegaze sound mostly tips the scales at the weightier end of the genre with their dense, swirling guitars and substantial rhythms. Premiering here on PopMatters, Lightfoils' Hierarchy is out today via Saint Marie Records.
