For the past week the forthcoming album from L.A.’s Tamaryn,
Tender New Signs, has been a fixture
on the BLURT jukebox – small wonder, as it’s rightly described by the band’s
label, Mexican Summer, as “a dark, yet cathartic shoe gaze, dream pop sound somewhere
along the lines of Beach House, Cocteau Twins, and My Bloody Valentine.” Here’s
a taste, via the track “I’m Gone”:

 

 

 

 

2010’s The Waves was a fantastic start, leading
our reviewer to enthuse,
“Languid swirls of pedal-looped guitars and jangling
tambourines…Tamaryn’s soothing, mostly whispered Hope Sandoval-esque… delirious-lo-fi,
noisy psyche rattled by floor toms and gentle… a precious free spirit, blurring
each moment with a subtle, sunwashed haze.” For the new record amaryn, and her
longtime collaborator Rex John Shelverton have meticulously crafted nine songs
showcasing stadium-sized guitars, softly-lit melodies and a familiar sense of
purpose. Anchored by Tamaryn’s intimate, yet compelling vocal delivery, Tender New Signs builds off the duo’s
critically acclaimed sound, while opening doors to an even more unique array of
emotional dream pop.
