The Adeen EP
Seattle-based Thaelo have got a nice thing going on their debut EP. Guitars form dreamy melodies and singer Darcy Hudelson croons distantly or caterwauls.
Opener "Twisted White" is early Ride meets Sonic Youth in terms of soaring melodies with indie attitude. "Oklahoma" is lullaby-soft and sweet but grows epic after a while. "Empty Planet" ends the ep with the sound of softly meandering guitars while Hudelson chants passionately. It's an intense and personal record.
