[Thorn Castles, by Gardens & Villa]
A short and catchy one this week, to herald the finally sunny weather here in Chicagoland. Something to tap yr toes to, from G&V’s self-titled record out soon on Secretly Canadian. I know practically nothing about this band, except they’re from CA and put a beautiful image on the cover of the record. Musically, this isn’t earth-shattering, but then what if every offering was? Fragments, everywhere. Too much. No, here’s simply some fine music to water the garden to. To walk home eating a delicious spinach pie to. To wait and see what happens to.
Strangely enough, I just discovered they’re playing in Chicago as I type this. In another life I’d have ventured out for the show. Hey! Don’t forget to buy some music every once in awhile - recordings, shows, how about a t-shirt…keeps it all going, right?
