Guitar make no secret of their inspiration on their 2002 debut for Morr Music: From the opening swirl, you're sucked into the My Bloody Valentine fuzzbox, a roaring echo chamber reinforced by Stone Roses-style breakbeats. Regina Janssen (of Donna Regina) slips unscathed through the maelstrom, her crystal voice immune to the sandblasting distortion all around. Backward loops lend a woozy undertow to raga-like drones, while hip-hop beats provide the rolling motion. Ringing with pink noise, it's a veritable dream-pop classic.
