In the year of the saxophone, Santa Barbara's Gardens & Villa give us the flute. And along the way, Gardens & Villa effectively wipe clear the vaseline from the murky bedroom funk of recent days. Gardens & Villa bang out instant classics — each crystal clear and immaculate, but no less sweeping or languid. Their debut is a youthful exploration of just how opulent and pop starkness can go." Gardens & Villa continue on their North American tour as they wrap up dates with Foster The People and head out with Generationals, followed by shows with Craft Spells. Gardens & Villa’s debut LP is out July 5 on Secretly Canadian.
