Bringing us some pretty decent shoegazer pop from Dayton, Ohio, the Lab Partners write songs with the pop sensibility of the Jesus and Mary Chain and the noisy-echoey-guitar-over-strummed-guitar approach of Galaxie 500. Both bands I really miss, and Lab Partners are a worthy reminder. While some of the songs are definitely a little too pop for me, other songs are gorgeous, well-constructed, and well-executed in terms of noise texture and melody. Think also of Slowdive/Mojave 3.
