Riff: My Bloody Valentine – “wonder 2″

Feb 6, 2013

And I found you something to hold you alive/Into the head on

from wonder 2 lyrics by My Bloody Valentine

Likely to baffle anyone unfamiliar with MBV’s warped soundscapes, “wonder 2″ closes one of the most eagerly-anticipated records of the 21st Century with a suitably disorientating barrage of psychedelia & whirring jet engines which yet again focuses on the theme of clinging on to something palpable.
