Knifeplay spent three years worrying over and tinkering with the songs on Animal Drowning, and it shows. Recorded with Philly indie rock whisperer Jeff Zeigler, the band’s sophomore album is perfectly executed shoegaze: hypnotic and bleak and impossibly beautiful. The band owes much to legends of the genre like My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins, but their influences run deeper — to emo greats American Football and slowcore staples Duster. Animal Drowning is harrowing but calming, and it contains so many rippling effects and small but significant touches that you simply must lean in and listen closely.
American Football are back with two new singles, “Rare Symmetry” and a cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” featuring Miya Folick on guest vocals. These will be the last two recordings American Football do with founding member and drummer/trumpeter Steve Lamos, who announced that he was leaving the band earlier this year after two decades.
