Madder Rose

From: New York, New York

Active: 1993-1999

I first heard them: when 120 Minutes played "Car Song"

Sound: the first two albums were a sort of unusually focused variety of shoegaze; the last two were trip-hop and not remotely as good

Listening station: I liked Madder Rose enough back in the day that I wrote them a thank-you letter. Like, a piece of paper with handwriting on it that I put in a stamped envelope. It was a different time.

"Car Song" (1994)
"Sleep, Forever" (1994)
"While Away" (1993)
