Transverberation

The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa - ...Fluidtrance Centauri... (1993)

Can you believe there are idiots out there who claim Bernini's sculpture is centered around a female orgasm? The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa was a Czech shoegaze band; it is now a one man electronic project. Why would they stop making such blissful soundscapes in favor of bland blips and bleeps, you ask? Well, because somebody stole all their equipment, and it was cheaper to buy a computer. In their short time as a band, St. Theresa released three great shoegaze releases, but I would say this was their best work. Fluidtrance Centauri showcases the group at their most mature, with the perfect blend of dreamy keyboards, distorted guitars, and ethereal vocals. Too bad it's only three songs long.
