Sound Check: Mazzy Star "Lay Myself Down"

Getting you through your day with a kick in your step.

’90s flashback alert!: In the last week we’ve gotten both news of a Stone Roses reunion, and now, the first track from the forthcoming Mazzy Star album. A collaboration between singer Hope Sandoval and guitarist David Roback, Mazzy Star epitomized the college radio days of that era before “Fade into You” brought them a moment of mainstream success. But it’s been a full fifteen years since Star’s jangly, moody music filled anyone’s dorm room. “Lay Myself Down” is nostalgically familiar, with Sandoval’s husky voice, plaintive steel guitar, and a noir-ish country sound all present. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to light a few Yankee Candles, open a bottle of Boone’s Farm, and tie a sock on the door knob.
