She hangs brightly

She hangs brightly from the tree
Wonders what shes done to me
I’m aware of your game
Come and watch me
Watch me come down
Takes me down deep and wide
Pulls me through to the other side
Shes the winner of her game
Come and watch her
Watch her come down
It stays down
Sour in truth
Lies of loving
The story’s cheap
Shes the winner of her game
Come and watch her
Watch her come down
Deep and wide
Inside, inside, inside

by bunnystick

She hangs brightly from the tree
Wonders what she’s done to me
I’m aware of your game
Come and watch me
Watch me come down

Takes me down deep and wide
Pulls me through to the other side
She’s the winner of her game
Come and watch her
Watch her come down

It stays down
Sour in truth
Lies of lovin’
The story’s cheap

She’s the winner of her game
Come and watch her
Watch her come down.

Deep and wide
Inside…

Mazzy Star – She Hangs Brightly (1990)

Mazzy Star – She Hangs Brightly
Released 1990
Genre Alternative rock, Dream pop, Psychedelic Rock/Folk
Length 40:28
Label Capitol
Producer David Roback
Mp3 @ 256 / 76MB


She Hangs Brightly was the amazing debut album from the magnificent !

We’ve already posted lots more Mazzy

Mazzy Star’s roots lie in the California Paisley Underground movement of the 1980s. David Roback, along with his brother Steve, was one of the main architects of leading Los Angeles psychedelic revival band, the Rain Parade.

Leaving that band after their first LP, David founded Opal in the mid-1980s with ex- Dream Syndicate bassist Kendra Smith.

Opal’s quasi-psychedelic ruminations, with their guitar drones and hints of blues and folk, weren’t far off the template that Mazzy Star would follow.

Roback met Sandoval through Kendra Smith. Sandoval, still in high school at the time, was playing in a duo called Going Home with Sylvia Gomez; Kendra was impressed enough to make a tape of their music and pass it on to Roback, who produced a still-unreleased album by the pair.

When Smith left Opal under cloudy circumstances in the middle of an American tour with The Jesus & Mary Chain, Sandoval was tapped as her replacement. After that tour and a jaunt through Europe were completed, Opal disbanded, and Roback and Sandoval decided to continue collaborating in Mazzy Star.

She Hangs Brightly was the first album from Mazzy Star, released in 1990 not long after the demise of Opal.

This 1990 debut on Rough Trade, She Hangs Brightly, was a post-punk take on the kind of dark psychedelia practiced by The Doors on “The End”, as well as the massive guitar drone woven by The Velvet Underground on “What Goes On”. Most of the rest of their material is devoted to acoustic-flavoured ballads with heavy blues and folk elements, often featuring Roback on slide guitar.

She Hangs Brightly, basically picks up where Opal’s Happy Nightmare Baby left off!

Exchanging Kendra Smith’s languorous vocals for the sultrier presence of Hope Sandoval, David Roback continues chasing the neo-psychedelic holy grail he’s pursued since his days with the Rain Parade.

After opening with a pair of standouts, the dreamy “Halah” and the garage-inspired “Blue Flower,” the group demonstrates a solid grasp of atmosphere and texture across a seris of consistently good tracks

The opening track “Halah” was also released as a single. It announces the band’s trademark effect with haunting guitar work and lyrics, and Hope Sandoval’s disengaged vocals.

Roback’s Robbie Krieger-inspired psychedelic blues slide guitar style can be heard on the song, “Free”.

“Ghost Highway” is another psychedelic rock track, with a fast rhythm. This song dates from the band’s days as Opal and was initially slated to be the title track of Opal’s second album.

While not a commercial success, this album was lauded by critics and helped establish Mazzy Star as a unique band with a unique sound.

The great album cover features a shot of the interior of Hôtel Tassel in Brussels!

the second track on the LP, “Blue Flower” is a Slapp Happy cover from the 1972 album Sort Of.

Mazzy Star – So Tonight Τhat I Might See (1993)

Mazzy Star – So Tonight Τhat I Might See
Released October 5, 1993
Genre Dream pop, alternative rock
Length 51:36
Label Capitol
Producer David Roback
MP3 256 kbps / 92 Mb


So Tonight Τhat I Might See
was the second great album from the magnificent !

We’ve already posted lots more Mazzy

The album’s first track, the sublime “Fade into You,” was the band’s only single to make the Billboard Hot 100 chart, topping out at #44. The song also hit #48 on the UK Singles Chart.

This LP represents minimal change in the sound from Mazzy Star’s first album She Hangs Brightly, although the tracks are a tad more processed and a little less gritty.

“Fade into You” became a staple of mid-1990s teen dramas, movies, and perhaps represented a kind of gentle ennui that was missing from the more aggressive angst of grunge.

Continuing with the general theme of quieter, more contemplative songs, this album became a staple on college radio stations.

Therefore, thanks to the fluke hit “Fade Into You” – one of the better beneficiaries of alt-rock’s radio prominence in the early ’90s, a gentle descent of a lead melody accompanied by piano, a steady beat, and above all else, Hope Sandoval’s lovely lead vocal – Mazzy Star’s second album became something of a commercial success.

All without changing much at all from where the band was before – David Roback oversaw all the production, the core emphasis remained a nexus point between country, folk, psych, and classic rock all shrouded in mystery, and Sandoval’s trademark drowsy drawl remained swathed in echo.

But grand as She Hangs Brightly was, So Tonight That I Might See remains the group’s high point, mixing in plenty of variety among its tracks without losing sight of what made the group so special to begin with.

Though many songs work with full arrangements like “Fade Into You,” a thick but never once overpowering combination, two heavily stripped-down songs demonstrate in different ways how Mazzy Star makes a virtue out of simplicity.

“Mary of Silence” is an organ-led slow shuffle that easily ranks with the best of the Doors, strung-out and captivating all at once, Sandoval’s singing and Roback’s careful acid soloing perfect foils. “Wasted,” meanwhile, revisits a classic blues riff slowed down to near-soporific levels, but the snarling crunch of Roback’s guitar works wonders against Sandoval’s vocals, a careful balance that holds. If there’s a left-field standout, then unquestionably it’s “Five String Serenade.”

A cover of an Arthur Lee song – for once not a Love-era number, but a then-recent effort – Roback’s delicate acoustic guitar effortlessly brings out its simple beauty. Tambourine and violin add just enough to the arrangement here and there, and Sandoval’s calm singing makes for the icing on the cake.

Mazzy Star – Among My Swan (1996)

Mazzy Star – Among My Swan (1996)
Released October 29, 1996
Genre alternative rock
Length 54:00
Label Capitol
Producer David Roback
Hope Sandoval
MP3 192 kbps/ 74 MB

Among My Swan was the third album from the magnificent !

We’ve already posted lots more Mazzy

Another wonderful work! This one also features contributions from William Reid of the mighty !

Although Among My Swan did not contain any US Billboard Hot 100 hits like its predecessor, So Tonight That I Might See, this album did garner the band its highest-ranking single on the UK Singles Chart, when “Flowers In December” reached #40 in November 1996. However, the album’s second single, “I’ve Been Let Down”, did not chart in either the United States or the UK.

Among My Swan relied less on the echo effect that was ubiquitous across the previous two albums. Hope Sandoval’s voice is paired with simple acoustic instrumentation that marks most of the tracks. The guitar and harmonica accompaniment on “I’ve Been Let Down” is a prime example of this. These tracks are not markedly different in sound or feel from the preceding two albums.

Among My Swan is considered Mazzy Star’s final album. Although the band has not officially broken up, they have released no new material since the release of “I’ve Been Let Down” as a single in 1996, and lead singer Hope Sandoval has gone on to form Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions, which released an album in 2001.

Mazzy Star – The other side (b-sides & live tracks)

A rather rare and excellent collection from the late great and majestic ! – a truly excellent group who never attained the success they well deserved!

We’ve already posted lots more Mazzy

We’ve dug this one out again and have been obsessively listening to it! Yap, we think it’s pretty fucking good!!

We’ve already written a piece about our fave song here, the great Green on Red cover Hair and Skin

Some history of this great group? OK then!

Main man David Roback was once in the rather good indie group Rain Parade and, soon after Roback left and split that band, he founded Mazzy.

Roback, along with his brother Steve, was one of the main architects of leading Los Angeles psychedelic revival band, the Rain Parade. Leaving that band after their first LP, he founded Opal in the mid-1980s with ex- Dream Syndicate bassist Kendra Smith.

Opal’s quasi-psychedelic ruminations, with their guitar drones and hints of blues and folk, weren’t far off the map that Mazzy Star would follow, and indeed Roback met Hope Sandoval through Smith.

Sandoval, still in high school at the time, was playing in a duo called Going Home with Sylvia Gomez. Kendra was impressed enough to make a tape of their music and pass it on to Roback, who produced a still-unreleased album by the pair.

When Smith left Opal under cloudy circumstances in the middle of an American tour with The Jesus & Mary Chain, Sandoval was tapped as her replacement.

After that tour and a jaunt through Europe were completed, Opal disbanded, and Roback and Sandoval decided to continue collaborating in Mazzy Star.

They made three marvellous atmospheric albums on Capitol – 1990’s She Hangs Brightly , 1993’s So Tonight That I Might See Capitol and 1996 ‘s Among My Swan -before a few hiatuses!

After the release of Among My Swan, the band toured until early 1997, after which they would not be heard from for three years! During this time, Sandoval, worked with groups like The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Chemical Brothers.

https://i0.wp.com/www.hopesandoval.com/pics/hope9.jpgIn 2000, the band reunited for a mini-tour in Europe, which featured new songs that Sandoval later revealed in interviews would be on a new Mazzy Star record, which was also recorded during this time. However, these sessions were not released.

Although the band never officially broke up, Sandoval would go on to found the band Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions, and appear on recordings by Bert Jansch, Air and Death in Vegas.

This one here, THE OTHER SIDE is an unofficial album made up of selected live tracks and b-sides.

Wonderful music, magic songs and sultry Hope Sandoval’s sultry voice! What more could you want?!

And don’t you know her eyes were red?


This is a song that’s been swimming around inside my head a lot lately, for some reason!

That’s the great thing about having an empty skull!

From the late great and majestic Mazzy Star! A truly excellent group who never attained the success they well deserved!

This is a stupendous Mazzy cover of a Green On Red track – from the excellent collection of Mazzy B-Sides and Live tracks called The Other Side – which I’ll post tomorrow!

A wonderfully atmospheric and powerful piece of psycedelica, with great, deceptively simple lyrics by Dan Stuart from the rather good “Green On Red”, who we liked back in the day!

Must be sultry Hope Sandoval’s sultry voice!

Awwww …. Hope Sandoval …. the sexiest female to ever stroke a guitar!

Your hair and your eyes
I saw them in the night
Your face, your disguise
I felt it in the night

Your cool clammy skin
It could be right beside me
I saw you swimmin’ over here
You looked so fragile

And don’t you know her eyes were red?

Your hair and your skin
I know my desire
I felt akin
To my desire

Your eyes and your face
I dreamed them in the night
Your hair and your skin
I saw them swimmin’ over here

And don’t you know you’re life itself?

Here be mazzy’s hair:
