Published May 14, 2014After more than two decades and many lineup changes, British indie pop lifers Comet Gain are still going strong. Following 2011's Howl of the Lonely Crowd, they've now announced a new LP will arrive this year. Paperback Ghosts will come out in the UK through Fortuna POP on July 7.
The album was recorded at London's Soup Studio with producer Simon Trought (Allo Darlin', the Clientele, Television Personalities). A press release describes it as being "inspired by the psycho-geography of walks in North London woods and in the forgotten grey hinterland of the city's back streets."
The results apparently blend psychedelia, folk and garage rock. For a taste of this, hear the melancholic album cut "Long After Tonite's Candles Are Blown" below. It's described as "[capturing] a moment in time, old friends together on one of those magic nights that sweep into morning, everyone afraid to leave the dancing and the drinking."
