Veiled Vibrations is a regular round-up of SoundCloud analog classics brought to you by Cactus-Mouth, The Asclepiophone (formerly known as Cool Things I Find), Magic Teepee, and Pasta Primavera.
It’s a taste so familiar that my eyes roll back and I disappear into a slideshow of the past. My soul, snatched from my body, hovers and dissipates like lingering smoke. The world blurs, my friends cough, and finally I come to in the middle of a jam on repeat. Only to do it again.

Baltimore’s Dead Mellotron play shoegaze rock….scratch that, they play spectacular shoegaze rock. 2010′s S/T is worth every single penny (really more it’s just $3 on Bandcamp). They now have a new LP coming out, Glitter, on Sonic Cathedral May 7th (on clear friggin vinyl – hells yes!). They’ve just dropped the first single off it, and I’m blown away. Dead Mellotron‘s sound has grown larger, fuller…radiant even. Can’t wait to let the needle drop on this.
Pre-order Glitter here. Like ‘em on Facebook here. Meanwhile, a little birdie told me that these folks are playing in Baltimore on March 9th somewhere that is soft and housey…and PORTALS may have something to do with it. Check back tomorrow.
