Durham-based duo Sweet Home are here to serve you some spicy shoegaze – we recommend you start with their latest offering, “Dream.” Full of sludgy guitars, nimble fretwork, and ethereal and endearing vocals, this one brings to mind acts like My Bloody Valentine, Pity Sex, and Smashing Pumpkins. Underneath all the fuzzed-out instrumentals is something hauntingly beautiful and melodic… And sometimes you just need a jam that you can crank up to eleven. This is absolutely that song – turn it up, get lost in the wall of sound, and let your worries fade away.

You can also find “Dream” (and the rest of Sweet Home’s discography, including their recently released album Advice) on Spotify.
