Abby Gogo Goes and Goes

It's not quite appropriate to pigeonhole Abby Gogo as a shoegaze band and the garage rock shoe doesn't quite fit either. Rather, twin brothers Bon and Jon Alinson and company traverse an expansive middle ground where '60s pop sensibilities are tempered by elusive feelings of melancholy and elation. Previously releasing a split single with Carnivores in summer of 2009 on Double Phantom, Abby Gogo are now set to release their first full length on November 30, 2010.

The grinding intonations of every guitar tone and distant voice are captured with clarity, illustrating jagged sonic textures that serve the long bouts of repetition in the single "Louder Than Dreams". If you ever like early Verve singles or even the first album, you will absolutely love the raw psychedelics of Abby Gogo.
