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.
Debut album of the short-lived dream pop band. Galaxie 500 are the kind of band whose mastery of texture and unrepentant slowness makes them an ideal salve for the mind. I don't know how hectic life is on a Tugboat, but if I was on one, I'd be content knowing this calming trio were at the helm.
