The Big Pink - Velvet (video)

"Poison in my head"

Again, another great shoegaze track. You know the drill, My Bloody Valentine, Jesus & Mary Chain, droning guitars, analog synths, loads of reverb, etc. Personally, I also love two specific things about The Big Pink and "Velvet": their great ear for anthemic melodies and the fact that the guitar volume never stops rising until the very end, with the exception of a small breakout. The video suits the track really well too (i.e., it's amazing and slightly disturbing in the best possible way).
