"Seasons of your day" comes after a humongous seventeen year gap since Mazzy Star's last album. It reflects in turn the dissolution of the band in the nineties and their tortuously slow reunion kick started by the lovely single "Common Burn" at the heart of this album. In their prime Hope Sandoval and David Roback not only recorded the national anthem of dreamy pop "Fade into you" but also prefigured a host of bands who have followed in there footsteps not least Beach House. It is good to have them back and check out the excellent article on the history of this intriguing musical partnership in the October edition of Uncut.

For those of you who own any Mazzy Star long players like the excellent "So tonight I might see" this new album will not represent a radical departure once you slip on the headphones. The minimalist and languid nature of the album is completely in tune with their previous work ethic as is the dusky quality of Sandoval's voice accompanied by the brilliant guitar playing of Roback. Highlights include the late great Bert Jansch's accompaniment on the powerful folk blues "Spoon", the excellent opener "In the kingdom" which really does show the debt that Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally owe to this band and the lovely country acoustics of "Flying Low" where the band head into territory usually occupied by the Handsome Family. The haunting "California"in turn reprises all that is good about the music of Mazzy Star while the slow blues of "Does somebody have your baby now" feels like it floats in the ether its so effortless. Ultimately some may complain that to return after such a long hiatus with an album that it completely consistent with work done in the 1980's and 1990's is a missed opportunity. That would be churlish. Mazzy Star produce beautiful music and in a week where the world has seen much ugliness "Seasons of your day" is almost therapeutic.

Many have tried to copy and many have got nowhere near. That voice, that echo, that lazily gorgeous strum, that rhythm that writhes around you like cigarette smoke, that artwork, even the font !! I love this band so much. This could be first, second, third or twentieth album. Doesn't matter. They are mazzy star and I hope they do this again in another 17 years!!!!

It has been an astonishing 17-years since the last Mazzy Star album, the underrated "Among My Swan" (1996). After that subdued album Mazzy Star (effectively the duo of David Roback and Hope Sandoval) apparently kept collaborating and recording together, discarding most of their efforts until they came up with the 10-tracks on "Seasons Of Your Day". Well simply put it is a gem provided you've can get into the right mind-set. This ain't pop music, as it has always been with Mazzy Star a significant portion is post-Velvets drone rock but with a few (minor) new twists....

A surprising number of the tracks are acoustic and therefore quite folky including a beautiful duet with the late, great Bert Jansch on the fade out to the 6 minute long "Spoon". Furthermore there are tasteful touches of slide guitar here and there until the final track, "Flying Low" where Roback really tears at his guitar with his slide hitting a potent laidback bluesy groove. Most of the tracks are meditative and quietly melancholic with Sandoval's deliciously narcotic sleepy vocals proving a world weary accompaniment to Roback's supremely evocative music. The fastest track is probably "Lay Myself Down", the B-Side of 2011's excellent 'Common Burn' single (also here), which has a bit of a country influence with some excellent pedal steel licks threading through the tune reminding me if anything of Jerry Garcia's amazing steel work on the 1st 'New Riders of the Purple Sage' LP from 1971.

Therefore a definite recommendation for anyone who enjoyed the music of the first era of this great band in the early/mid-90's and also for anyone too young for that but is curious to find out what all the fuss was about.

The title of the review refers to one thing - the 2x12" 180gm vinyls that come in a sumptuously designed gatefold sleeve are actually beautifully purple coloured, but don't worry about any quality off-set (if you're canny you won't even open it, but I had to know). There aren't any amazing pictures of Hope inside, just a couple of single shots, one of Hope and one of David.

SO HERE'S THE ONE THING: it comes with a nicely designed little "dropcard" with a code on it that grants you mp3 downloads - though I ant tell you exactly what because although the process also involves registering an email, [b]THE DROP CARD IS ABSOLUTELY A ONE-SHOT-ONLY DEAL[/b] - so make very sure your Internet connection's stable (and not being screwed with or the router restarted by some other d**k who lives in the house) whilst you're downloading, because once used, it will NOT allow you to re-enter it, for any reason. You have to contact the site admin who are courteous but secretly probably don't believe you. Really stupid system for anti piracy protection or whatever it's for.

Mazzy Star are probably one of the handful of truly independent artists left in a truly globally duplicitous scene the major label owners have the audacity to promote as free from corporate control and carefully packaged products of bands they push out of their asses. And for this fact alone , you should go and buy a mazzy star release to support them.

Hope's voice just gets sweeter and richer with years, and she looks like she's barely aged a day, and there're only a few grey whiskers in David's sideburns.
