Shoegaze isn’t dead, it just lives in Louth. That’s a conclusion to be drawn from listening to Just Mustard, a Dundalk five-piece who released their debut album Wednesday earlier this year.
The eight tracks on the release suggests they are A-plus students of the genre and have soaked up a lot more beyond those borders. Just Mustard take the ethereal blueprint of bands like Warpaint and torch the edges, creating the nightmarish flip-side to indie’s dreamier prospects. Their debut album ‘Wednesday’ is a two-toned masterpiece, flipping from hypnotic, smoky vocals to screeching industrial noise on the fly.
