US only release on 180 gram vinyl! On their third full-length, The Clientele are setting free their inner Monkees with a lovely blend of Big Star twisted power pop, Byrdsian country achin', and flashes of the Beatles at their most joyful and upbeat. The ghosts, half-light, and uncertainties remain, but included in this music is a newfound optimism. With the addition of piano and violin, the band paints from a broader palette, adding splashes of pedal steel and slide guitar to their already lush songs. Their most accomplished and triumphant record. Recorded in Nashville with Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Calexico, Silver Jews).
