Texan noise-pop band Comet's lone album, Chandelier Musings, was produced by original Mercury Rev singer David Baker -- and the early albums by that band, along with the earlier work of the like-minded Flaming Lips serve as fine reference points for the intensely overlooked Comet. This track, "Rocket Flare", sports a loud, blistering guitar attack, but elsewhere in the record the band sometimes takes a softer approach - even occasionally employing string sections.

Comet - "Rocket Flare"

from Chandelier Musings (1997, Dedicated)

  1. Love this Comet CD. The Stone brothers recorded a follow up a few years ago and just as quickly as they reappeared, they disappeared. Too bad, I really dug their sound.
