Themilo – Let Me Begin
Preview Track: Romantic Purple
Themilo’s first album “Let Me Begin” (2002) has a different sound from Side A to Side B. Side A is fuzzy, distorted, sounds like early Boo Radleys, Ride or Revolver. Side B is pretty much dream pop and ethereal like Slowdive and Cocteau Twins. Some of the most legendary songs from Themilo like “Lazy” with Sir Dandy and Alvin Yunata of Teenage Deathstar can be seen in this album. The track “Malaikat” and “Romantic Purple” also became the single from this album back in 2002 and have their own MVs, both were popular in national television.
Themilo also collaborated with Alexandra J. Wuisan (Sieve) on the track “Yins Evolving” and “Sianida” in which Alexandra wrote the lyrics and filled in the vocals. “Let Me Begin” for Anoa Records is one of the most essential local shoegaze album. Cherry Bombshell’s mini album back in 1994 can actually be assumed as the earliest shoegaze release, founded by Ajie Gergaji.
The album is like a mozaic from Themilo, touching a lot of their references, adding their own slant in the process and has become one of the most sought after releases today.
