Now Hear This: The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness | Songs From Another Life

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

168

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “For this second album, The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness open the range of influences — more American, more exuberant — and present a powerful sound with arrangements that make us dream of better days. In addition to Teenage Fanclub, Big Star and The Byrds, there are sonic references to Fountains Of Wayne, Matthew Sweet, Weezer, R.E.M., The Lemonheads, The Beach Boys and there are even distorted breaks à la Dinosaur Jr. or Sugar.

In keeping with our socially distant, locked-down times, the duo’s parts were recorded separately, without the two musicians sharing a studio or even a city: Andrew did his part in Edinburgh at his rehearsal room, while Gonzalo did his in San Sebastián at Yon Vidaur’s studios.

Despite the distance, these songs are beautiful, bright and stimulating. This pop music of heavenly guitars does indeed seem to come from another life — a life that might never return. Welcome to Songs From Another Life. Welcome back to the world of TBWTPN.”
