Formed in East Lansing, Michigan in 1991, the duo of Lovesliescrushing consists of Scott Cortez (guitars) and Melissa Arpin-Duimstra (vocals). They are an ambient/noise group (though signed to the goth label, Projekt Records) that uses the shoegaze/dream pop sound as a starting point, but drop conventional song structures, and focus on highly textured and otherworldly soundscapes. Guitarist Scott Cortez’s use of his guitar in conjunction with loop devices, e-bow, paint scrapers,forks, knives, vibrators, violin bows, etc. to create lush, swirling tones dissociated with guitar has caused critics/reviewers to mistake them for using keyboards. Their sound is typified by a signature lack of drums, glossolalia, dense billowing chordal clusters, massive sheets of white noise, delicate looped back wound figures implying abstract rhythms and ambient freeform instrumentals.

They have released five full-lengths to date, all recorded with a simple 4-track recorder, including their latest release, Chorus, which was done completely in a capella. « hide
