After Should's first full-length in 1997, A Folding Sieve, attempts to culminate this band's career. Starting in 1995, when the band recorded under the name shiFt, this release pulls from the band's original EP, a 7", a few covers, and adds four unreleased songs. This is a perfect introduction to the band, and it's one definitely worth exploring. Falling somewhere between shoegazer rock and experimental slowcore, Should creates absolutely beautiful songs full of textured guitar and keys and swirling vocals care of Marc Ostermeier and Tanya Maus. Each song contains heavily layered guitars and vocals for that wonderful My Bloody Valentine feel, only more relaxed, more mellow and introspective. Picture a mix of MBV and Low for an idea of this dreamy, spacey band. The songs here tend to sound a bit similar, but that's to be expected from the genre, as layered guitars, keys, and swirling vocals can only go so far. Still, there's enough variety to demonstrate why this band deserved more recognition. The thick, distortion-filled "Breathe Salt" builds to an impressive climax, while "Feels Like Morning" is more mid-paced, with the male vocals taking the lead. The percussion takes the lead on the more dark and moody "Resonate," and "Own Two Feet" is a lighter, more poppier track that is led by female vocals. The music is so mellow and laid-back, it tends to get lost in your subconscious. But more sprightly than your typical slow-core dream-fest, the shoegazing guitars and swirling sounds do keep things more exciting. You don't hear much shoegazer rock these days, at least not of the mid-90s variety, and maybe that's why picking up this retrospective-type release from Should is a good idea.
