1 - DRAPE - CANICULAR DAYS - (CD) 
TRICKSER


Its been a steady uphill glide for Oslo quintet Drape (itspronounced ,draw-peh"). The band formed in 2010 and releasedtheir first EP the following year, five songs they say were inspired by ,colorful shoegaze, dream pop weightless, sunshine, summer and love." The Norwegians were brought to our attention earlier this year with the quite brilliant free download ,Memories (which still sounds heavenly here) and the promise of a debut album very soon. True to their word, their first full length is now available. Its called ,Canicular Days and you should listen to it, because its a stunning collection of all the things that inspired them. Essentially, theyve lived up to their potential. As expected, Drapes sound does draw heavily from the dreampop that you already know, but thats not to say theyve failed to put their own slant on things, and its definitely not to say that they dont have the songs to compete with the best. Very often a band will make sure their opening track is one of the best, as it will be many peoples introduction to their music. Here that opening track is ,Blue Skies and it begins as a lush and mistyeyes soundscape with heavenly layered vocals. Then a quick change through the gears turns it into an impressively galloping dream-gaze track. Its the impressive start wed hoped for. The best thing about ,Canicular Days is that they havent put thebest song first; theyve made nearly everything here a best songcontender
