“Time Travel” by Blouse // Blouse (2011)
Blouse has been batting a thousand as of late with a stream of brilliant, gorgeous digital singles. Each one seemingly more dreamy and lush than the last. This time around, they return with a track off of their forthcoming self-titled album, and it’s a darker, more menacing cut that fits firmly in the season. In fact, there’s such an ominous synth line running throughout that this track would be an excellent addition to any Halloween mixtape. If this is evidence of the excellence that awaits the full length then we are in store for a potential late year entry into the album of the year race. This is stunning post-punk tinged dream pop for a chilly season.
