The Megaphonic Thrift - The Megaphonic Thrift LP
The Megaphonic Thrift is a Norwegian indie-supergroup of sorts consisting of Richard Myklebust of Stereo21 and Young Dreams, Linn Frøkedal and Njål Clementsen of Low Frequency In Stereo and Fredrik Vogsborg of Casiokids and Young Dreams. They make catchy melodies and then drench them in guitarnoise, best described as noisepop with shoegaze elements. Their premier influences are acts like Sonic Youth, Built To Spill, Dinosaur Jr., Guided By Voices and My Bloody Valentine.
"From raspy pseudo-ballad "I Wanted You to Know" to "Kotton Krown"-esque burner "Over the Mountain, Down in a Teaspoon," The Megaphonic Thrift demonstrate just how to execute an inventive and absorbing ode to a bygone era.” – Exclaim!
