June Parker – “Throw It All Away”

June Parker churn out atmospheric, shoegaze-leaning tunes from Richmond, Virginia. They released two songs this past week, “Throw it All Away” and “Slow”. The former is an alluring blast from the past, with a bouncy bass line and gauzy guitars forming a lush wall of sound accompanied by prickly ’80s keys and distant vocals. The aesthetic reminds of Wild Nothing, an impressive showing for sure. “Slow” pursues a more MBV-like route, with heavier waves of guitar exuding a melodic and enjoyably lethargic feel. Both of these tracks show a very capable act that’s well versed in rock and shoegaze heroes of the past, with their own original additions.
