What other people say:
"Garage rock put through a fuzzy peyote filter."
About Medicine To Cure Medicine Sickness off Sonic Cathedral’s Psych For Sore Eyes: "Their contribution, ‘Medicine To Cure Medicine Sickness’ finds itself brimming with Jefferson Airplane-style nostalgia, albeit updated and brought to life by Lorelle of the band’s moniker’s exquisite vocal performance."
Drowned In Sound, 2013.
"The Guadalajara duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete play a real deadly nightshade brand of psychedelia."
Live Eye Tv, 2013.
"Still brewing a hot pot of shoegaze and Krautrock bubbled through a psych filter, the band knows how to ride the edge of groove and gently cut back to spacey atmospherics to superb effect."
Raven Sings The Blues, 2013.
"A duo from Guadalajara, Mexico, LMTO do some of the best shoegaze/psych munge since Montreal’s No Joy. They hammer deep into slurf/riff territory, then blast out pocket universes of pure noise and haunted vocals. Very fine."
Byron Coley, 2012
“Lorelle Meets The Obsolete furthers the punk of groups like The Sandwitches, Medications, and Mikael Cronin by adding yet another layer of mesquite mystique — a.k.a. fuzz-y-Q — to a haunting lurch of dual guitars, middle-of-the-mix bass, and 70s bad-boy-rock drumming.”
Tiny Mix Tapes, 2012.
"On Welfare, the band’s debut, reveals some truly beautiful moments after its led you into its world—the kind of moments that can make you think this band could be huge."
Get Bent, 2011.
"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."
Raven Sings The Blues, 2011.
“This Mexican shoegaze/psych duo knows its way around hazy dreamscapes and heady squalls of noise, and it delivers both on debut album On Welfare.”
Los Grillos Collective, 2011.
“El disco de inicio a fin se convierte en el testamento del garaje moderno; aquel que se vierte diluido en una cámara obscura que permite ver una diapositiva borrosa de las consecuencias del ruido.”
