Mazzy Star


2013 is a year of comebacks, that's for sure. The first to reappear was My Bloody Valentine after over two decades without new releases and then came David Bowie, Suede, The Pastels, Pixies, Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age. After listening to Mazzy Star's new release, Seasons Of Your Day, after 17 years hiatus, it might be one of the best comebacks this year for a simple reason: They continued the sound that they created in the early 90's. Sometimes, innovation in music can put forward some acts, but sometimes it's better to stay on the safe side. Hope Sandoval and David Roback are returning with the familiar sound, minimal production and the soft voice of Sandoval, creating a beautiful winter time album. For those of you who don't remember how good they are, here are five reminders

Fade Into You (So Tonight That I Might See, 1993)

Flowers In December (Among My Swan, 1996)
