Tremolo Review

by Nitsuh Abebe

Tremolo is one of the EPs that accompanied My Bloody Valentine's influential masterpiece, Loveless. One could consider it more of a single -- it lifts the abstract track "To Here Knows When" from the album -- but its real worth lies in the three songs which accompany it: "Swallow," "Honey Power," and "Moon Song." These are less carefully formed and produced than the tracks on Loveless, but they offer the same sort of material -- any one of them could have been "cleaned up" and included on the album without seeming too out of place. Just like on Glider, the songs seem like missing chapters in the total experience that is Loveless; and given the band's maddeningly long silence following such a masterpiece of an album, anything more that fans can get their hands on is probably worth the marked-up price this EP can fetch.
