how come no one, until now, bothered telling me about the band helium?
judging from what little i've found to listen to it has most of what i love about 90s music; the shoegazing aspect, feedback noice, lovely vocals. (oh, and it says on wikipedia that juliana hatfield's brother jason was in an early line-up of the band, before they changed their name to helium. cool, right?)
they released two albums and a few eps on matador before they split up in 1998, but singer mary timony continued to make music solo and in other constellations. this is one road i'm going to explore.
have a listen:
helium - xxx (1994)
helium - superball (1995)
helium - pat's trick (1995)
helium - honeycomb (1995)
helium - leon's space song (1997)
