Venus Beltran – “Music For The End of The World” – [Turkish Delight]
An EP worth of doomy, sloppy and experimental nu-gaze from Venus Beltran, a side project by singer/guitarist Dave Han of the San Francisco based Astral band. One might consider this music dystopian dream pop as well. Echoing and wallowing vocals are drenched between drifty guitar lines and sparse electronic drum machine beats. Some songs reminds me of a drony Jane’s Addiction performing while in sleep — in a positive way. The EP is splendid doomsday music for one of those days.
