Manorlady: Home

Aaron Bailey, Melissa Bailey and Donald Wooley are Manorlady, a shoegaze post rock trio from Charlottesville, VA. Windswept tumbling guitar licks abound on their full-length Home, riding on top of old school drum machines while bass player Melissa tries hard to channel Kim Deal. It's one of those rare albums that sounds loud even when played at a low volume.

The Great Wide Open is obviously a big influence. Manorlady has managed to great a big sound on a low budget. Dreamy soundscapes tailor made for late night radio while driving on a deserted highway.

Aaron Bailey: guitars, vocals, sequencing
Melissa Bailey: bass, vocals
Donald Wooley: keyboards
