yeah that’s a brilliant record, really stopped me in my tracks the first time I heard ‘ever new’. have got the s/t one too, but I haven’t yet got round to giving it the time it probably deserves

"Sunset Village" is just the most serene, blissful moment, I love this music

I should probably put this on the 'times you embarrassed yourself with music' thread but I totally just searched RYM for 'Beverly Glen' after reading about this mysterious new artist on the Xgau thread and christ if I didn't stumble into Beverly Glenn-Copeland instead. I read the description and thought 'that sounds up my street' and just had my heart handed to me by 'Erzili'. Beautiful.

I've only just got into Beverly's music through a Spotify recommendation called Sunset Village which is extremely beautiful. I suddenly see his name popping up everywhere!

Is the new thing all live or a weird compilation thing?
― plax (ico), Monday, 28 September 2020 08:36 (three weeks ago) link
i think it's a comp. i love it to bits

boxedjoy and i were talking about how there seems to be a bit of a throughline or appetite for music like this this year. See also: Eddie Chacon and Reuben Vaun Smith who aren't exactly the same but seem to share sonic similarities

there are 2 new things: a live album (Live at Le Guess Who?) and a comp (Transmissions)
― flopson, Wednesday, 30 September 2020 05:28 (three weeks ago) link
Ok thanks! I read a review where this wasn't clear and having seen him live twice, the first time with the band he played 'Le guess who?' with and second time with a different band and the band made a real difference. First time at cafe Oto incredible, intimate and expansive and incredibly locked in playing by a band that had clearly practiced A LOT, sparse intricate and subtle. Second time was a different story, bad vibe, felt schmaltzy and hollow, different band (wholly competent but far from transcendent). In fairness, first concert was a real one shot thing and after the second one felt like I got my comeuppance for being so greedy.

Sunset Village is such a beautiful song. It's like someone giving you a big hug after something incredibly shocking has happened
