Your Daily Lick: Aprilsrain

Stellar Transmission (PVP Records)



Three years of recording at the Plant in Sausalito yielded Aprilsrain's debut, a pleasant collection of distilled dream-pop and shoegaze that leans more toward the mainstream than perhaps it should. The crisp, clean production will appeal to Pinback and Death Cab for Cutie fans, but even those bands take more chances.
