Within These Walls is a 2007 album from Galaxie 500 / Kramer couple Damon & Naomi. The mood is sombre and moody, in an old-fashioned and smoothly-dramatic sense. With superb string and horn sections and Michio Kurihara’s guitar on board, they’ve produced a really beautiful suite of songs here. Released on vinyl for the first time, thanks to 20.20.20.
The former Galaxie 500 rhythm section, Damon Krukowski & Naomi Yang have been making music now as a duo for a significantly longer than Galaxie 500’s three album run over two years. Damon & Naomi’s new album, Fortune is a companion piece to Naomi Yang’s short film, the music is so involved with the film and the film with the music, together they play out more like a long-form music video. The music and the film deal with Yang’s feelings following the death of her photographer father. She compares and contrasts his great work as an artist with his not-so-perfect role as a parent. The title then, is a nostalgic yet sardonic one.
Fortune is available on vinyl LP and CD.
Extremely classic and crucial album here from Galaxie 500, the dream-pop slow-indie band with one of the most particular sounds around. 1990’s This Is Our Music is the last album they released before splitting up, and contains songs as special as ‘Fourth of July’ and their Yoko Ono cover ‘Listen, the Snow Is Falling’.
