Maybe some of Babbling April's song tempos are a tad too fast to be considered true 'shoegaze', but rules don’t seem to apply to this DC, whimsical foursome. Unique percussion techniques and stellar guitar effects round out their unique sound. A nice mix of
male and female vocals make for such a sweet listening experience. I prefer female vocals in general, so I gravitated towards the Vivi Machi's track's in which her vox are so, so soothing. I predict much more from these guys, being such wonderful musicians. Beautiful, atmospheric progressions. Great songwriting and grooves. Do yourself a favor and immerse yourself in their melancholy melodies.
