Lorelle Meets the Obsolete is a psych band from Guadalajara, Mexico. Their debut, On Welfare, was released on May 24th of 2011 via Captcha Records.
The Mexican duo sear their way through a heady mix of shoegaze and psychedelia that wobbles when you think it's going to run straight into the foam and scorches just when you're least expecting it to catch fire. The band has a way of wrapping the two genres (and the edges of quite a few more) around their guitar strings and pulling them tight into knots, only to have those same knots disappear in a puff of black smoke. Their On Welfare album is a perfect soundtrack to humid rains, streaked with heat and swelled with the promise of relief.
