Landing II (Self-Released)

landing2I’ve had a big soft-spot for Landing for the last decade. Not only have they made some of the most delicious ambient pop around, but they were also the first ever interview I did when Foxy Digitalis launched in 2003. Anyway, they released this stellar tape (now available in digital formats) in conjunction with the tour they recently did (their first in ages and in celebration of their 15th anniversary as a band) and it features some absolute gems. “Two Veils” features a meaty bassline that anchors the layers of spiralling guitars while “Trending and Time” has a Red House Painters feeling to it that just kills me. It’s only five tunes, but they’re all very, very sweet. I still love this band.
