Bay Area post-shoegaze sextet Whirr generates suspenseful songs of soothing, razor sharp guitar textures backed by soft, cooling vocals. On their full length debut ''Pipe Dreams'', the band's supercharged spirit rejuvenates the '90s shoegaze sound, providing a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. Whirr's wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listening ears into a near cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang perfectly in the balance. The sound of Whirr is a totalizing crush when texture and volume hit perfect balance and bright pop melodies wander through dark, dense guitar noise. Twenty years after My Bloody Valentine awed music fans with its now-classic ''Loveless'' LP, Whirr takes hold of the reins and lets its fluid, immaculate surge of drones and reverberations light the way. The New Psychedelia has arrived! Whirr features guitarist Nick Bassett, also of celebrated post rock / black metal band Deafhaven whose debut album ''Roads To Judah'' was named as one of NPR s ''Best Metal Albums Of 2011''. Look for Whirr touring in the spring of 2012, including an appearance at the SXSW Festival.
