Riff: My Bloody Valentine – “if i am”

Feb 6, 2013

You are fully lost/Either if I am/Be my lover

from if i am lyrics by My Bloody Valentine

The type of alternative lullaby that could only ever lead to nightmares, Bilinda Butcher sleepwalks her way through a dreamlike fusion of muffled off-kilter beats and in & out of focus drone-rock riffs whilst attempting to express her sense of longing for an equally lost soul.
