The Depreciation Guild


Could the Jesus and Mary Chain have rocked harder if they added a Nintendo power glove to the mix? The Pains of Being Pure at Heart side project the Depreciation Guild aims to prove that hypothesis, mixing 1/2 fuzz with 1/2 bedroom angst of the Super Mario Bros variety. Though newer tracks (such as the My Bloody Valentine-perfect single “Blue Lily”) have lessened the power-up sound effects for an ethereal shoegaze, the Depreciation Guild create the perfect makeout soundtrack for those who rarely leave their bedrooms. With the Click Clack Boom and the Vanguard.
