Lenola – Sharks And Flames

Since 1994, Lenola have existed as a cut-price Mercury Rev without transcending their influences. This double CD gingerly attempts to do so. Lenola still sound like forgotten shoegazers Drop Nineteens apeing the aforementioned giants, but now blend R.E.M.’s psych-country into the equation. They come into their own with skewed but joyous bubblegum pop blasts.
