Italy is also part of the '90s revival! Here's Be Forest.

There's a brand new single by Italian band Be Forest, "Captured Heart," off the album Earthbeat, which arrives February 2014. While its unconventional time signature and percussion style are quite nice, I'd like to backtrack to a single that came out a month ago, because it's a bit musically superior and has a solid shoegaze bite to it, reminding of the hazy surf of the late '80s and early '90s that has so strongly been making its return, topped with a barely-there female whisper that could easily have come from Hope Sandoval or Harriet Wheeler.

You can buy this seven-inch at Bandcamp. It's really fucking marvelous.
