I can think of many times in my life where I’ve felt overwhelming sadness, and at the same time, a strange sense of beauty all around me. Â I cherish the records that remind me of those moments. Artists like Antony and the Johnsons, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Gem Club can take me to those moments in mere seconds, with the simple glide over a violin string or a trembling, aching vibrato.
If you’re in that kind of mood, have a listen to the first two tracks off Gem Club’s new record. Â Then, go watch a Seinfeld rerun, you sad bastards.
Preorders will include a very special postcard pack, hand assembled by the band. Each track of the album has its own postcard, plus a cover card, for a total of twelve.
Extremely limited! LPs include a download code.
