Mercury Rev – Frittering (1991)


Now for one of my shoegazing/alt rock favourites… Mercury Rev’s song ‘Frittering’ featured on their psychedelic long player Yerself Is Steam. Guitarists Jonathan Donahue and Sean “Grasshopper” Mackowiack unleash a wall of feedback at the 2:05 mark to accompany David Baker’s claustrophobic vocals. It’s all infused with West Coast shimmer and a pinch of Roger Waters-like salt to taste. Bloody brilliant.
