Ringo Deathstarr – ‘Colour Trip’ – Album review

Originally published: The Stool Pigeon

Shoegaze has had something of a spit-and-shine resurgence in the last 12-months, which means Kevin Shields is either getting a nice little pay check to keep him quiet, or he’s summoning all the legal powers of darkness to sue every Tom, Dick and Ringo Deathstarr over intellectual property infringements. Colour Trip at times sounds like a colour-by-numbers take on MBV circa-Strawberry Wine; but often than not, the Texans are willing to draw upon their own Kaleidoscopic pallet to polish things off. It’s a textured, weighty listen, where instruments undulate and daub a soundscape that has been trod before, but with its own pioneering vision driving its direction, it is definitely worth the trip.
