"Minneapolis’s Chatham Rise continue to demonstrate how to solder hazy ’60s psychedelia, space rock, and shoegaze into a gauzy, comely, cloudy, lovely blend between Rain Parade’s slowdown of the Byrds and The Chameleons’ tickle-feather guitars—with a bit of Slowdive’s reverbed density for spice. Too bad this split contains only four terrific tracks; following their single last year, we could use another full enchilada to go with 2013’s eponymous eye-opener. However, that clears space for England’s also-excellent dreampoppers, thelightshines, whose 2014 Now the Sandman Sings’ Ride-isms (seen here again on “Hanging Around”) must be on any fan of the above’s radar to compliment these four cuts. They share an overall base in the nicer/swirlier Nuggets bands with CR, too, and the shimmering sitar-saturnalia of “Sunshine in My Head” and “Meditations on Death” are especially dig-able." - Jack Rabid, Big Takeover
