Song of the day: Chapterhouse/"Pearl"

I've been going through yet another dip into the shoegaze pool recently, going through my old bins of import-only singles and listening to long-forgotten albums of dreamy, distorted beauty. Since a lot of this stuff is out of print, most of it's not available through Rhapsody.

One of the exceptions, though, is also one of my favorite albums from the early 1990s: Chapterhouse's debut album, Whirlpool, which is on my short list of desert-island picks. The album contains perhaps my favorite single from the first wave of shoegaze music, "Pearl," and other strong contenders like "Falling Down" and "Breather." I could go on and on, but I'll spare you -- just click here to check out Chapterhouse.
