Shoegaze stalwarts Modern Time Machines have been in hibernation since the release of their 2012 full-length “Continuity Girl,” as the lineup fluctuated around main man Ben Golomb. His quartet now includes Mike Raines, Ryan Connor and Stacy McClarnon, but the new single “Loveletters” including writing and guitar contributions from John Riccardi (ex-Eskimohunter), who was in the band last year prior to moving out of state. Fans of My Bloody Valentine and Medicine will recognize MTM’s wall of sound, accented here by Arlene Ziodia’s flute and Kaitlin Wolfberg’s violin. The trippy video is the work of Christopher J. Ewing, with the band’s Connor adding visual effects. Modern Time Machines has always excelled at homages to the shoegazing greats, and their new single is yet another love letter.
