Teenage Fanclub – Here (LP Clear)
20.00 € inc. VAT
Here is Teenage Fanclub’s 10th full-length album — the first since 2010’s gorgeous Shadows — and it doesn’t stray from the fold as it oozes melancholy melodies, dreamy contemplation and pure pop.
Teenage Fanclub finally sound stable and sure of themselves, dripping with liquid pop laced intoxication, seeming to make an attempt at holding onto summer for one more day, for one last hour of surf, and one second more for a summer love, before the crashing of fall washes it all away, leaving those warm days and heady nights as but a distant memory. This set of songs bespeak clarity with a gratifying hushed-ness that waylays any notions of immediateness, preferring to linger around the edges of your mind like the last humming birds before they head south, leaving you with something not only beautiful to hold onto, but something to warm your heart as you walk through winter wrapped in scarves and woolen coats.
These are the sort of blissed out love songs that allow you to feel connected, centered, and quietly lost in a session of pure impeccable ecstasy, sounding timeless and essential with their hypnotic jangling guitars and light handed effects. I suppose what I’m trying to say is that Teenage Fanclub have managed the feat of stopping time, and replacing that time with forever never ending dreams.
