Into the Groovy #32 - "Strawberry Wine"
April 18, 2016 9:26pm CST
Led by guitarist Kevin Shields and fronted by vocalist Bilinda Butcher, My Bloody Valentine is one of the best, if not the best outright, shoegazer band's going. The UK hit (#13) "Strawberry Wine," an exercise in jangle-pop, was first released as a single prior to it's inclusion on both 1987's Strawberry Wine EP and 1989's Ecstasy and Wine compilation album. Shields' jangling guitar is great, and Butcher's vocal harmony is top notch - Shields more than holds his own singing along with Butcher's always sweet, sweet vocals. It may not entirely be a shoegazer tune, but it's still my favorite My Bloody Valentine song.
