Tiny Mix Tapes Reviews: Galaxie 500 - This Is Our Music

in categories:

I just came across this very nice review of Galaxie 500's third album This is Our Music on Tiny Mix Tapes

These are perfect pop songs — funny songs, sad songs, love songs. Our Music’s two centerpieces, “Summertime” and Yoko Ono’s “Listen, the Snow Is Falling” (they were a great weather band), achieve a majestic, burning magic that transcends any subgenre.

In fact, due credit is still rarely given when it comes to their exceptional influence on modern indie pop; My Morning Jacket, The Shins, Slumber Party, and Band of Horses (to name a few) all owe something to Galaxie 500, the best Boston band of all time.
