a bit different but still beautiful

Gardens and Villa just continues to be my favorite band. No matter if they go in a little different direction, their lyrics and sound is still beautiful! Love them!

Huh???

Sorry guys, I wanted to love anything put out by Gardens & Villa, but I can't get on this train. I don't like it. Songs just seem so basic and boring. What happened?

About Gardens & Villa

In 2008, synth-driven indie pop group Gardens & Villa formed in Santa Barbara, California. With an album's worth of sugary, celebratory tunes under their belt, guitarist Christopher Lynch, keyboardist Adam Rasmussen, bassist Shane McKillop, and drummer Levi Hayden traveled to Oregon to record their self-titled debut. Gardens & Villa was completed over the course of two weeks under the supervision of Secretly Canadian labelmate Richard Swift, and released in the summer of 2011. Around this time, Dustin Ineman was brought on board for live shows to play keyboards and percussion. By the time of their next album, he was on board as a full-time member. 2014's dancier, more focused Dunes was produced by Tim Goldsworthy (late of the DFA team) and recorded at Michigan's Key Club studio. Amid persistent touring, Hayden left the band, and Ineman focused on percussion for their 2015 LP, Music for Dogs, a hooky and experimental post-punk brew produced by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra). ~ Jason Lymangrover
