Orange Aurora – Dracula Coil (Rok Lok Records)

orange aurora dracula coil cover

Musical Content: Orange Aurora’s sound is described as “bedroom shoegaze,” due to the home recording technique and the dreamy guitar pop that they create. Dracula Coil is rich with reverb and guitar textures. The album’s pacing is deliberate and varied, never monotonous. The music harkens back to the early-90s releases from Teen Beat, namely Eggs and Unrest. It’s a refreshing sound that deserves reconsideration.

Packaging and Sound Quality: This home-dubbed tape (in real time) has a nice tonality. The black-shelled tape contains minimal artwork that matches the striking cover. The full color J-card is numbered.

Edition of 50 and available from Rok Lok Records.
