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.

I'm very fond of The Magnetic Fields, and this particular release has some of my favourite songs, and the album is fantastic as a whole. Stephin Merritt's talent truly shines in the arrangement and his deep voice resonating in many of the songs. Originally released in 1994, this is a reissue from Merge Records, and a great way to acquaint yourself with The Magnetic Fields before splurging on '69 Love Songs.'

  • 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.

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.
