Back in the ’90s, the Los Angeles band Medicine perfected a shimmering and melodic take on shoegaze, released three albums, and performed at the crime-boss bad guy’s nightclub in The Crow. They broke up in 1995, and they haven’t all gotten back together since. (In 2003, frontman Brad Laner did get together with Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon, not a member of Medicine previously, to release a pretty-good album under the band’s name, but that one may or may not count.) All the band’s original members are once again back together, and they’ve got a new album called To The Happy Few coming this summer. The lead single is a glitchy swirl called “Long As The Sun,” and you can download it below.
