the husband-wife duo’s deeply melancholic songbook of glacial Americana is an often heart-rending listen that sporadically infuses sunset-kissed tracks with soaring wind/brass backing.

Taking inspiration from 1950s exotica and Hawaiian albums (Edhen Abhez, Buddy Fo, and Martin Denny), 1970s outsider Italian songwriter Vittorio Impiglia, and a host of third-stream and West coast jazz records, the result is a unique offering. “Much of the music was written over rainy mornings on acoustic guitar inside the cabin of our boat and outside of the city in a little guesthouse in Pt. Reyes,” alexi erenkov reflects. recorded in Portland over 10 days, it was an intense and occasionally tense process. fans of early first aid kit and fleets foxes’ hazy indie folk, cigarettes after sex’s languorous atmospherics and damioen jurado’s acoustic intimacy will adore this.
