Riff: My Bloody Valentine – “only tomorrow”

Feb 6, 2013

Want you to hear my each beating heart/Wants yours is mine, a love foreseen

from Only Tomorrow lyrics by My Bloody Valentine

Turning the fuzz up to 11, Butcher attempts to coo a Shakesperean set of poetic verses over a neo-psychedelic loop, but her romantic intentions are all but drowned out by a disorientating array of feedback, drones & distortion that sound like the entire stock of a Fender factory being tortured.
