”…many of us have missed the sound of winding, ethereal guitars and sweeping, synthetic layers over minimalistic beats. The sound is well-known from a golden era when labels such as Sarah Records and Factory spread little grains of gold like The Wake, New Order, The Durutti Column, Stockholm Monsters and The Field Mice. But, there’s another thread that through the North Sea connects the Northern Britain with our West Coast: the eternal lashing of rain at bus stops, on windscreens and window-ledges. And the light after the rain: the shimmering, but with a darker undertone.

|The return of Jim Ruiz!
“Mount Curve Avenue” is the first release by Jim Ruiz since the turn of the millennium. His music has always been about making classic pop songs in a stylish and orchestrated suit, picking influences from a wide range of genres and making something unique and very beautiful out of it. Why this guy isn’t a legend among the indie (and beyond) audience is a Big mystery to this date.
