In high school and college I was a huge fan of Richard Davies’ many amazing musical projects.

“This is a Happy Garden” is on Untune the Sky, a little before my time. I must have heard it before but it is really blowing me away now. Love the slow build to the last 30 seconds or so. You can check out more early Moles here.

Clearly I need to spend more time on Stereopitchvegan because I hadn’t heard that Davies’ has a new(ish) album out with Bob Pollard (!), whence “Nude Metropolis”. I pretty much would have died over this when I was 17.
