My Bloody Valentine wasn't the only band making luscious, dreamy noise-pop back in the early nineties. Medicine's great Shot Forth Self Living is a pretty solid record, quality consistent throughout. Kevin Shields-style walls of distortion and lotsa treble dominate the record, interweaving with the delicate harmonies and male/female vocals therein. My boy Steffen turned me on to Medicine about five years ago, but never picked up the records until about a year back. This is no Loveless, but it's damn close.
