Songs You May Have Missed #237


The Clientele: “Isn’t Life Strange” (2007)

Alasdair MacLean has one of my favorite names and one of my favorite voices. His London band, The Clientele, have a wistful and evocative sound that perfectly complements a contemplative mood and a cloudy day. Violins, cello and occasional gentle tremelo guitar punctuate a reverb-laced sound that always hints at heartbreak just around the next corner. The album, God Save the Clientele, is a  thing of sad beauty, a quietly devastating record.
