The Apartments
The Evening Visits and Stays for Years (Expanded Edition)

The Apartments main man, Peter Milton Walsh made a big noise in the Brisbane alternative music scene of the late seventies and early eighties. So much so that none other than Grant McLennan and Robert Forster from fellow Brisbanites The Go Betweens asked him to join their band. He did, but not for long. They were chalk and cheese. Perhaps just as well really as The Evening Visits and Stays For Years, The Apartments debut album proper, wowed the British music press upon it’s original release in 1985. Thanks to Captured Tracks, we now have the reissued and expanded version to enjoy. The Evening Visits and Stays For Years is available on double vinyl LP with download code and CD.

The Apartments

Drift by The Apartments was roundly lauded by critics at the time of its original release in 1993. The chamber-pop gem tells the story of characters who drift in and out of each other’s lives and the songs within.This reissue was mastered at half speed and is lovingly packaged in a gatefold sleeve. The Apartments are the brainchild of Australian singer/songwriter Peter Milton Walsh who started his career in an early incarnation of Aussie pop heroes The Go-Betweens.

The Apartments
No Song No Spell No Madrigal

Available on 12” vinyl and CD on Microcultures. First new album from Sydney based The Apartments in eighteen years!?! No Song No Spell No Madrigal is filled with hugely cinematic chamber pop that has the climactic builds of The Antlers or Cinematic Orchestra and the raw emotive power of Leonard Cohen’s Dance me to the End of Love.
