Majesty Crush's Greatest Hits LP I Love You In Other Cities has just been released on Full Effect Records. For those not familiar, Majesty Crush was Detroit's premiere shoegaze band, easily on par with many of their contemporaries from the UK in the early 1990s.

Majesty Crush drummer Odell Nails The Third (pictured above with me at some absurd hour of the morning at a party recently) is - when not being a music industry lawyer - currently Cocteau Twins mastermind Robin Guthrie's drummer... which must feel like a mind-blowing 20 year odessey of shoegaze awesomeness. Hobey Echlin is a respected music writer, David Stroughter continues to make music and Mike Segal is one of my design colleagues at Ghostly International and creator of Boy Cat Bird.

Congrats to Odell, David, Hobey and Michael for getting the recognition they deserve.
Buy the record!
