Land Lovers/Windings: Split album (Popical Island/Out on a LImb Records, 2014)

Los irlandeses Land Lovers acaban de publicar un álbum compartido con Windings, otra banda paisana. Ambas graban para sellos diferentes: Popical Island, en el caso de los primeros (de hecho son sus propietarios) y Out on a Limb, en el caso de los segundos.
El Pop desenfadado y deshinbido de Land Lovers vuelve a tomar aquí forma de nuevo. Todo un monumento al C86, a gentes como Stephen Malkmus, Jonathan Ritchman y a gentes que, de alguna manera, van de anti-estrellas.

El sonido de Windings es mucho más pausado y relajado, una especie de actualización de la música de Neil Young y sus Crazy Horse. En verdad, la unión del sonido de los dos grupos no tiene mucho que ver y ni siquiera tienen demasiados nexos en común para compartir un disco. Pero el hecho es que ahí está. En la variedad está el gusto…

Land Lovers meanwhile are one of the bands spearheading Popical Island’s rise to Irish indie’s top table and they kick off their side with the single ‘Vittima di Cucina’, a full-throttle collision of Denim, Shonen Knife and early REM. Continuing with the intelligent songwriting that marked their previous album Confidants, ‘Vittima di Cucina’ opens the latest Land Lovers’ release with its foot firmly to the floor. Six more (mostly) brief pop incidents follow as Land Lovers deliver their most tuneful, up-front set to date” (Press)

“This is the first new windings’ material since the release of their Choice Music Prize nominated album, I Am Not The Crow. The 5-piece have spent the intervening time gigging in Ireland and the UK and writing the tracks that will be part of a new windings’ release later in the year. Lead single ‘Neverwood’ zips along with a sparse verse before kicking in with some sci-fi Joey Santiagoesque guitar in a big chorus. windings are at their best throughout, with all five parts of the machine pulling in the same dynamic direction” (Press)
