Lab Partners - Review for Daystar:
KZSU Zookeeper Online

Bringing us some pretty decent shoegazer pop from Dayton, Ohio, the Lab Partners write songs with the pop sensibility of the Jesus and Mary Chain and the noisy-echoey-guitar-over-strummed-guitar approach of Galaxie 500. Both bands I really miss, and Lab Partners are a worthy reminder. While some of the songs are definitely a little too pop for me, other songs are gorgeous, well-constructed, and well-executed in terms of noise texture and melody. Think also of Slowdive/Mojave 3.
