Emma and Miki of Lush - The Ethereal Sisters.

Diving back into the 90's tonight with seminal Dreampop/Shoegaze/Alternative practitioners Lush and a session they recorded at the BBC on February 12, 1990.

Lush were always in my Top 5 list of favorite 90's bands and, in my opinion, still sound as fresh as they did 20 years ago.

Here's what they play:

1. Leaves Me Cold
2. Hey Hey Helen
3. Breeze

I don't think they made as big an impression on the U.S. as they did in their native UK but that isn't to say they weren't an astounding and highly influential band during their period of time together. It was under sad circumstances they broke up and one wonders what they would be doing if they were still together now. But I guess you can make that speculation about most bands who came and went in a comparatively short period of time.

And if you've never heard them before they're new to you and, by all means, hit the "play" button.

Can you help us out?
