Early '90s alt-rockers Mazzy Star had one mainstream radio hit, three albums and one very dynamic frontwoman. Hope Sandoval's dreamy vocals graced the songs of Mazzy Star since 1990, and she's worked with everyone from the Jesus and Mary Chain to Air. Now, Sandoval has announced that she and her band, the Warm Inventions, will release their second album this September.
Through the Devil Softly will be the Warm Inventions' first album in eight years. Sandoval isn't the only '90s alternative landmark appearing on the album. Playing alongside her will be Colm Ó Cíosóig, co-founder and drummer of My Bloody Valentine. The two have worked together since the beginning of the Warm Inventions with their 2001 EP, At the Doorway Again, and subsequent debut full-length, Bavarian Fruit Bread. The new album will drop Sept. 1, but if you're dying to hear new material from the collective, you can catch them on their upcoming North American tour; stay tuned for dates.
