Gardens & Villa: I was recently turned on to this coastal California quintet via their connection to Richard Swift who produced group’s upcoming, self-titled LP. Having teamed up with Secretly Canadian on the label front, G&V craft new-wavey pop music, reminiscent of the 80s, complete with just-right synth tones and requisite attitude. Sonically, I’m reminded of the smart left turn Abe Vigoda made last year with the release of their Crush LP. Album’s out July 5th.
