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.

  • Yes, another recommendation for The Clientele! 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 ... Yes, another recommendation for The Clientele! 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.

  • The Radio Dept. is a band I found out about through the 'Marie Antoinette' soundtrack, and I was able to listen to more of their shoegaze (or is it "newgaze"?) sounds online thanks to Last.fm. 'Pet Grief' is a wonderful, mood... The Radio Dept. is a band I found out about through the 'Marie Antoinette' soundtrack, and I was able to listen to more of their shoegaze (or is it "newgaze"?) sounds online thanks to Last.fm. 'Pet Grief' is a wonderful, moody little album that combines a little bit of new wave with shoegaze, indie rock and dream pop in a tidy package courtesy of Sweden's Labrador Records, and probably the most accessible release for those of us in the US market aside from ordering straight from Labrador. If you've heard the two songs off of the 'Marie Antoinette' soundtrack, this album shouldn't disappoint.
