Silver


Vaguely Christian shoegaze from Riverside sounds about as unappealing as they come, but Starflyer 59's debut album Silver is a treasure trove of maudlin 90's quiet/loud.

This has been one of my favorite records since it came out. It's a shame that alot of people wrote them off because of the label they were on. Definitely my favorite of theirs.

Excited, but no surprised to see this on the Cosmic Hearse. SF59 is an excellent band even to this day.

YES. The description is going to throw people, but Hearse folks are going to enjoy this. I never would have made the connection, but YES.

One of the very few albums from the youth group days that still gets spun, and got me into all sorts of other distortion-heavy tuneage later on.

The one below (I suck at html) is one of my favorites from them too.

Happy you posted this, it is my favorite shoegaze album. Pretty much perfect. Way underloved gem.
