Into Dust… MAZZY STAR 1990s
Video Essay Now Showing!

One scene that’s overlooked in Los Angeles is the Paisley Underground, which gave the world bands like the Rain Parade, The Dream Syndicate, The Pandoras, The Three O’clock, and many more. I remember how these bands were on the bills with punk and hardcore bands. In my opinion, the most important musical byproduct of this era was Santa Monica’s Mazzy Star. Hope Sandoval’s voice will always be linked to the early ’90s, and she offered all of us the best comedown music. There is something so warm about the way she sings, but at the same time, it sounds like she is serenading the ghosts in the cemetery. Today, CVLT Nation salutes a piece of sonic history, Mazzy Star, with a video essay featuring live footage and other visuals
