Music Thursday: More Loveless

Are you ready to rock shoegaze? My Bloody Valentine is one of those bands that shone very brightly for an instant and then just as quickly burned out, seemingly never to be heard from again. Their crowning achievement was 1991's Loveless, which was never a hit, commercially, but like Brian Eno said of the Velvet Underground, "everyone who bought it started a band." Over the years, it has come to be regarded as a minor masterpiece.

The video below is for "Sometimes", which was featured in the excellent 2003 film Lost in Translation. Enjoy.
