Since the emergence of shoegazers such as My Bloody Valentine, an entire generation of bands has attempted to latch onto that sliver of ethereality that aligns the thick clouds of careful cacophony. The path of guitar wash leads to the palace of wisdom, apparently, and Jucipher does its best to temper the delicate with the brutal. Lead singer Amber Valentine's vocals which alternate between a comely whisper and a full-on growl lure you in, while drummer Ed Livengood's pulverizing beats slap you around a little. If you're the sort who likes to be lulled into chaos, Jucipher is your pied piper.
