Surburban Light - The Clientele

Surburban Light - The Clientele

A collection of earlier singles, Suburban Light, released in 2001, showcases the lonesome dream-pop works from British band The Clientele. In comparison to their later releases, this collection is a bit more lo-fi and the melodies are sweet, melancholy and ever-so-lovely. The soft voice of Alasdair Maclean is best played loud. Perfect for those who like to walk in the rain, linger next to a window darkened by the night, reminisce about a lost love, and enamoured with an aching sense of longing.

  • Such a great movie. R.i.p Ian curtis.

Released in 2003, this album is a continuation of the moody, melancholy dream pop seen in their eps, culminating in this first full-length album. Truly beautiful, the soft delivery of Alasdair MacLean combined with the gentle melodies make 'The Violet Hour' a prime soundtrack for looking out a window and doing some people-watching with a glass of Scotch. Or perhaps for a bit of reminiscing with that same glass of Scotch.

  • Damon Albarn sure is an interesting bloke. Her he eschews more mainstream pop music to explore a slightly darker side.

Her he eschews more mainstream pop music to explore a slightly darker side. Employing some really great comrades in legendary African drummer Tony Allen, ex-Clash bassist Paul Simonon, and the Verve's guitarist Simon Tong. Given the rhythm section, there definitely could have been stronger African influences, but it's still a really interesting album, with some great songs on it. And bully to him for getting Paul Simonon to come out of retirement!
