Ride - Twisterella 12"

I've been itching to post some shoegaze vinyl here, and tonight I think I might start a trend in my posts. What better band to start with than Ride, which happens to be one of my favorites! I picked this 12" over the rest (for now), as I love the song 'Twisterella', but moreso love the flip tune 'Howard Hughes'. This song for some reason always reminds me of the 'Only Now' off the album Carnival Of Light. I really hated that album at first listen, but I must say that I've been playing it to death lately. The title track appears on the glorious Going Blank Again, and the remaining track could well have, as they're all quality material. Give the 12" a listen, and go buy it would you! This is one you could use having in your collection for sure.

Track 1, Twisterella

Track 2, Going Blank Again

Track 3, Howard Hughes

Track 4, Stampede
