'White Door By Carl'

I don't know if I should consider Silver Dapple to be a guilty pleasure, since their 90s shoegazey low-fi sound appeals to a retro-stuck sensibility that I'm prone to. The thing is if Silver Dapple were one-note, I'd feel more self-conscous about it. A recent bit of brilliance is on Bandcamp in the form of "Slip Stitch" full of catchy hooks and percussive drumming::

A free download is available on the download link on the player. This foxydigitalis review of 'White Door By Carl' [see player below], a shared cassette between Silver Dapple and Les Beyond, hits the nail on the head with this quote summing things up nicely::
"These kids take the sounds of yesteryear and bubble out their own special sounds. "
Here's WeirdCanada's review of 'White Door By Carl'. Other strong tracks are "{Pauses}", as well as "2 x 2".
