sleepy villas

"Sleepy Villas is a Chicago/Brooklyn-based musical collaboration between Alexandra Loughton, Kyle Benjamin Poff, (both from the group Wrugs), and friend and brother Jordan Carol Poff. Recorded this past summer in Albuquerque, over the course of a few weeks, this release is a nostalgic mix of simple strummed guitars, auto harp, Piano, tambourine, slight electronic percussion, drifting synth arpeggios and overgrown tired vocals. Buried on these six tracks is a deep humble groove that floats along like a smokey aftertaste. Heavy influenced by neo-classical compositions from the likes of Ravel and Heitor Villa-Lobos smashed through a blender and mixed with a modern psych no-fi hum. Nothing falls from the sky other than water, unless it dies from flying by." glass foot records
