A breathtaking journey through the Aislers Set’s intriguing musical neighbourhood, in which the interweaving streets and pathways offer a present-day glimpse of such revered notables as Phil Spector and Dan Treacy. This San-Franciscan posse of proud musical revisionists have taken their classic sounds and delivered a bold statement of where they are heading. From the colourful girl-group chime of opener “Catherine Says”, to the brash punk energy of “The Train #2”, to the sparse aching minimalism as evidenced on “Unfinished Paintings”, there is a rare quality of songwriting on display here, humbly delivered and wrapped up in soul, all strung together by Amy Linton’s off-the-cuff, ice-cool vocals.
Tracklist: Catherine Says / Emotional Levy / Languor in the Balcony / Mission Bells / Sara’s Song / Attraction Action Reaction / Through the Swells / The Train #1 / The Train #2 / Unfinished Paintings / Melody Not Malaise
