Mazzy Star

If psychedelic music had a voice in '90s post-punk, Mazzy Star may have been its strongest reincarnation. That doesn't necessarily mean that fans of the Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead will find the band to their liking, however. Mazzy Star much preferred the dark side of psychedelia, as exemplified by the most distended tracks of the Doors and the Velvet Underground. Their fuzzy guitar workouts and plaintive folky compositions are often suffused in a dissociative ennui that is very much of the '90s, however much their textures may recall the drug-induced states of vintage psychedelia.

Although Mazzy Star was nominally a full band, they were basically the core duo of guitarist David Roback and singer Hope Sandoval with backing musicians. Roback boasts a long history in the paisley underground, with the Rain Parade and Opal. He came across Sandoval after hearing a tape she had made as part of a folky duo, Going Home. (The Going Home album that Roback subsequently produced remains unissued.) Sandoval ended up replacing Kendra Smith on Opal's final tours. After Opal dissolved, Roback and Sandoval continued to work together as Mazzy Star, and released their first album for Rough Trade, She Hangs Brightly, in 1990.

Rough Trade's U.S. branch went under shortly afterwards, but luckily Mazzy Star were picked up by Capitol, who kept the debut in print and issued their follow-up, 1993's So Tonight That I Might See. There isn't much to differentiate the two albums, though that's not necessarily a criticism. Both share similar strengths and weaknesses: appealingly dreamy and atmospheric arrangements, rambling distorted guitar workouts, and lyrics that mix the haunting and the meaninglessly vague. Tonight That I Might See had been around for about a year before it suddenly got hot, reaching the Top 40, and spinning off a small hit single, "Fade Into You." Even in the wake of this surprise success, Roback and Sandoval remained as enigmatic and aloof as their music, rarely submitting to interviews, and offering mysterious, unhelpful replies when journalists did manage to talk with them.

In 1996 they released their third album, Among My Swan, which presented a far more acoustic approach from Sandoval and Roback. They shunned the echoed, shoegaze-influenced guitars that featured heavily on much of their first two records and opted for a pared-down acoustic affair. The record also proved to be their last with major-label Capitol, and they parted ways. A year later the band went on hiatus and started work on alternative projects. Roback worked with Beth Orton on her album Central Reservation; while Sandoval appeared on the Jesus and Mary Chain's 1998 record Munki and went on to create Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions with My Bloody Valentine drummer Colm O'Ciosoig. They returned briefly in 2000 for a mini-tour of Europe and in 2003 the duo performed together as part of Bert Jansch's 60th birthday celebrations in London.

A flurry of activity in the late 2000s saw their song "Into Dust" used on an advert for Virgin Media and then on a trailer for popular video game Gears of War 3, which propelled the song into the U.K. singles chart. This was shortly followed by the confirmation that Sandoval and Roback had been working on new material for a fourth album, and they released their first new material in 15 years when double-A-side single "Common Burn/Lay Myself Down" arrived in 2011. This was swiftly followed by a North American and European tour in 2012. The following year, details were announced for their fourth full-length record, titled Seasons of Your Day, which was expected in 2013. ~ Richie Unterberger & Scott Kerr, Rovi

Listening to, "Blue light." Doesn't Mazzy Star's music sound like the soundtrack to some 1990s David Lynch, or any indie directors, movie.
Great song. Always has a calming effect on me when I hear it.

I love this music so peaceful, melodic/hypn o t i c almost. do you guys ! Amazing!!




HAPPY NEW YEAR B I T C H E S ;)
Luv mazzy star! My favorite of course is "fade into you" but their are other good jams. Too bad she wasn't as popular as the others.
I come across Mazzy star through other stations. They played such a big role in shaping the music of the nineties, but still somehow remained peripheral. Maybe it's the nature of their music: unassuming, ambient, so ubiquitous that they were easy to ignore. It's time they got their own channel. Welcome to enzoferrari' s channel, guys. You earned it.

1.kiss your left hand
2. say your crushes name
3.close your hand
3. pick a day
4.say your name
5. post this to 15 other songs and your crush will ask you out on that day you picked
Mazzy Star is so wonderfully sentimental. They somehow pull it off. This song is anthemic of the 1990s. A decade so cheesy, so kitschy, but sometimes capable of hitting that sweet spot that somehow made it all worthwhile.
Don't read this because it actually works.You will be kissed by you're lover on the nearest Friday.Tomor r o w will be the best day of you're life.now that you are reading this don't stop.post this on 5 songs in 143 minutes.Then press F6 and you're lovers name will appear in big letters.This is so scary it actually works.
Don't read this cuz it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the one you love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you will die now that you started reading this, you can't stop. This is scary. Post this on five songs in 134 minutes. When done press 6 and your lovers name will appear in big letters. This is so scary cuz it actually works

This group has been a favorite of mine since I was a teenager. I still get goosebumps when I hear Hope's voice......h a u n t i n g l y beautiful!
just one of many that not enough people know about
Met them both YEARS AGO at a house party where they played in somebody's living room in nor cal. Hope's personality is as ugly as her voice is beautiful.
.... And that's not a bad thing at all, cuz through all the s**t she's put up with in our 18 years is significant itself.
Love ya Mandy
(^.^)
My first real relationship is all I can see over and over in my mind whenever I hear this album
............ . . . . . . s o fine
I don't think I've ever heard her before...but I'm digging every song of hers I've heard so far! Might be a new favorite!
had a huge crush on this chick,back in the day..
I've said it before but can't help repeating - so spacey/timel e s s .
