Much has been made (probably by us) of how Bell Gardens was hatched over evenings spent sharing wine and vinyl, as band founders Kenneth Gibson and Brian McBride shared their mutual love for the sounds of eras past. We asked them to put together a mixtape of some of their favourites to share with us. To go along with the mix we've asked them a few questions.
With Full Sundown Assembly out in the stores now and receiving words of praise from the media, we thought it was time to give the world a proper little taster of the album.
Bell Gardens gorgeous masterpiece Full Sundown Assembly is officially available now in record stores everywhere! Bell Gardens is the love child of Kenneth James Gibson (Furry Things, [a]pendics.shuffle) and Brian McBride (Stars Of The Lid), begat over many late nights talking and listening to the songs that have inspired them over the years.
Bell Gardens bring us another gorgeous cinematic postcard from their debut Full Sundown Assembly. "Nowhere" is a woozy ramble through the Bell Gardens palette of vocal harmonies, slippery guitar and subtle strings. You can see why Q magazine has called Full Sundown Assembly "beautifully understated, slow and graceful...immaculately conceived."
We are very happy indeed to officially announce the forthcoming release of Bell Gardens' single Through The Rain in July on Southern Records, to be followed by the full-length album Full Sundown Assembly in September.
