Fire Note Says: The debut LP from Lightships, Electric Cables begs to be played over and over.
I'm a Gerard Love guy, I always have been. If you were to point a gun to my head and ask me to tell you my favorite Teenage Fanclub song, I would say "I Need Direction", from their 2000 LP Howdy, without hesitation. So when I heard that Love had a new project, Lightships, expectations went thru the room. Love has crafted an album, along with fellow members of Teenage Fanclub (past and present), The Pastels, and Belle and Sebastian, that lives up to the high expectations and often surpasses them.
The record ends on an extremely high note, closing with perhaps the best track on the album, "Sunlight To The Dawn". This song perfectly sums up everything that the band does best, a slower tempo, a beautiful melody and a psychedelic spiraling guitar line, with a lush bed provided by the bass and flute. It's one you immediately want to hear again, in fact, the entire record begs to be repeated again and again!
Key Tracks: "Sunlight To The Dawn", "Girasol", "Silver And Gold"
