Hello, yes, I have a soft spot for shoegaze. Just in case you didn’t know. I liked the vibe of this local trio Tied to the Branches on their debut EP, and their second effort, Light of Day, It’s OK, seems to build upon that theme. Set to release on Abandoned Love Records on June 7, they will hit the West coast for a mini-tour starting at The Hemlock Tavern on June 9.
