I don’t remember what my parents were jamming when I was still in the womb, but I imagine it was probably The Doobie Brothers or Christopher Cross.  It wouldn’t have mattered anyway, because my umbilical era soundtrack probably sounded like Windy & Carl.  W&C create drones that go on for an eternity and emit heavenly vocals that stretch for miles.  Imagine Sigur Ros playing at half-speed.  Yes, it’s that good.

They’ve been around for 2 decades now, and have since gathered a modest, yet die-hard fan base.  It’s a bit pricier for statesiders because of int’l shipping, but Windy & Carl make music that is practically impossible to get tired of, so you’ll get your money’s worth from it.

The Details

**Transparent yellow wax in a diecut sleeve. Limited edition of 500**
"Next up on The Great Pop Supplement is a 45 from revered Michigan space rockers Windy and Carl. Released in celebration of the duo’s 20 years as recording artistes (they self released their debut 45 in 1993); the single represents something of a case of coming full circle for band and label as their first UK release came on GPS head Dom’s first label (Enraptured) in 1996, and the single here seemed a logical step in many respects… Their 20 year career has seen all manner of killer releases across labels such as Kranky, Darla, Ba-Da-Bing and Earworm. The single is heavy with their mesmerising trademark drone and drift, with ‘A’ side “Calliope” awash with Carl’s beautiful echo laden guitar sound and Windy’s murmured vocal lines on top."
