Sodus by Cemeteries

Kyle J. Reigle describes the elegiac, blood-freezing folk of his Cemeteries project as “goth pop,” a genre tag that feels a bit too cheerful once you’ve heard it. His songs have a hint of gloom, but nothing as scary as the goth name suggests. Two major 2012 trends sneak into play, witch house and chillwave, but mostly the album encapsulates the drowsy echoes of dream pop. Reverberated atmospherics might bring to mind Mazzy Star, and the nocturnal qualities fall right in line with contemporaries like Beach House and Bradford Cox’s drearier, spacy output in Deerhunter or Atlas Sound. This is an unofficial music video edited by David Dean Burkhart.
