Cathedral Classics Volume One


Collecting tracks from the first run of seven inch singles that the Sonic Cathedral label released, 2009’s Cathedral Classics Volume One compilation served as an excellent full-length marker that shoegaze and similar approaches were fully alive and well in a younger generation of bands. A couple of veterans appear in the form of Ride’s Mark Gardener and Dean and Britta among others, but the presence of School of Seven Bells (in the form of a Robin Guthrie remix), Maps, Japancakes, Daniel Land and the Modern Painters and M83 all showed where the sound was going next.
