Where the first album might have seemed a little too brash in places, nearly everything about 'Citrus' is so accomplished, refined, and downright transcendent that it could very well stand alongside Loveless as a modernized shoegaze staple, bringing exactly the right amount of noise, swirling affects, and sound balance to a record simply drenched in dreamy layers of guitar noise and static. Somehow, Asobi manage to map the uncharted territory where My Bloody Valentine and The Smiths might meet for drinks, whilst maintaining their sugary… Read more
