Vanishing kids - the selfish mirror

The cerebral title track overestimates its faux-My Bloody Valentine allure, and after eight-minute epic "Snow Angel" sputters on only 60 seconds worth of ideas, it's clear the Vanishing Kids feel more comfortable with immediate, hooks-driven sprints than languishing drone-rock marathons.

The Aka measure personal wealth in mithan, a breed of Himalayan cattle. A respectable bride price in Palizi, for instance, is expressed as eight mithan. The most cherished Aka possession is the precious tradzy necklace—worth two mithan—made from yellow stones from the nearby river, which is passed down to their children. The yellow stones for the tradzy necklaces can no longer be found in the river, and so the only way to have a precious necklace is to inherit one.
