Primavera Profile 2009 #1: My Bloody Valentine

Almost 2 decades after its release the legendary “Loveless” is still gaining ground and going down as one of the most beautiful and lethal records ever made. The swan song of My Bloody Valentine, the opus magna in which Kevin Shield gave himself almost completely, has been revived thanks to a re-mastering by Shields himself from the original analogical tapes. Maybe the new edition has not solved the chilling mystery of an album, milestone of noise-pop, in which the guitars sound like jet engines, crystalline fragility meets teasing shoegaze and noise acquires a new artistic and sound dimension, but at least it has kept My Bloody Valentine on the road. So, after testing the eardrums of European and American audiences last summer, the electronic dreamers land in the Estrella Damn Primavera Sound 2009 for two concerts, one in the Auditori del Fòrum (friday 29th of may) where their supersonic sound promises to cause real havoc and another on an outdoor stage (thursday 28th of may).
