MEDICINE was formed in Los Angeles in 1990 by guitarist/producer Brad Laner as a means for marrying raw experimental textures with classic psychedelic/pop song craft. Considered by many to be the foremost American purveyors of what some called Shoegaze or Dreampop, Medicine were one of the few U.S. bands on Creation Records and highly unlikely residents of Rick Rubin’s American Recordings where they released three LPs and many EPs between 1992 and 1995. At the time, these records elicited confused he d scratching from most and ecstatic devotion from some. Despite Medicine’s willful obscurity, they subversively reached mainstream consciousness via their appearance in the 1994 film (and its #1 soundtrack album), “The Crow”. Medicine imploded in 1995 and Brad Laner has gone on to release an ongoing series of solo LPs and guest appearances on albums such as the current M83 album, “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming”, Brian Eno’s “Another Day On Earth” and Caribou rsquo;s “The Milk of Human Kindness” . Following Captured Tracks' reissues of the band's entire catalogue last year, Medicine will release their first LP in nearly two decades this week.

Los Angeles synthgazers TROPIC OF CANCER have released three 10” singles through the much revered Downwards label, as well as a recent EP on Blackest Ever Black, The Sorrow Of Two Blooms. Following a lengthy European tour with HTRK last fall, UK press described Tropic Of Cancer’s sound as “melting gothic ambiance with shoegaze grit, resulting in a blissed-out drone,” and their latest EP on Mannequin finds the band expanding and enriching their sound. The band’s sparse, synthga e soundscapes invoke Factory Records’ producer, Martin Hannett’s coldest, crispest productions, while singer Camella Lobo’s ensnare and unfold in shades of Nico, Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine. These are the songs for the loveless.
