‘Gallery’ (Captured Tracks)
What started as a solo bedroom project for Justin Vallesteros has morphed into a gutsy live four-piece. Following debut LP ‘Idle Labor’ comes the ‘Gallery’ EP; a six-track offering packed with shimmering riffs, synths and loops which sees the Californian mastermind diversify his much-tipped take on ‘alternative 80s’. ‘Leave My Shadow’ is pure tears on the dancefloor disco; a creative peak and the perfect counterpart to ‘Warmth’’s jangly Marr-isms, the piano-backed title track and the haunting surf rock sweetness of ‘Still Left With Me’. Now back to your bedroom please, kiddo.
