In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviewed the new EP from Via Dove, Twilight. The group is celebrating its release with a show tonight at new venue the Chapel. (More information on this here.) He had this to say:

The thick, dreamy gauze of shoegaze meets up with the beefy rhythms of modern rock on Via Dove's debut EP. Singer and guitarist Andy Shadburne has an ethereal voice that's both languid and compelling, and most of these six songs cradle his vox in the verses and push it into orbit during the choruses. Opener "Your Blue Eyes" is the most subdued of the bunch, and it's also the most hypnotic: minor-key swirls of guitar chords set the table for echoing guitar leads and reverberating, bell-like keyboards.

Read the rest of his review here, and grab a few MP3s below.
