This band recently played at a benefit I was running sound for and they completely blew away all of the other bands on the list; except maybe M1 from Dead Prez who even though he showed up and hour and a half late still managed to pull out a great 20 minute set to the 30 or so who stuck it out. Despite the rather lacking sound setup they were able to fill a Prospect Heights loft space with a wall of controlled distortion and fuzz. It seems like shoegaze is making a bit of a return lately and Unlove's sound fits right in with other critical faves like Asobi Seksu (you know minus the Japanese). Their music simply radiates warmth and intensity, and singer Kristina Zubkova's vocals float above the clamor with a hushed beauty.
