Bartzabel I don't think I have the capacity to succinctly speak about what this record means to me. Through soft and heavy nights alike, it's been a comfort. I bought it on bandcamp previously, but it became so dear to me that I had to get a physical copy too. Favorite track: Codeine.

Simon England I had been hoping I would get this on CD at some point and it really doesn’t disappoint. Anyone who loves the shoe gaze genre will find plenty to love here; production is great - widescreen yet intimate atmospheres, terrific songwriting, gazey guitars and beautiful melodies, chord changes. I would class myself as a super fan of this kind of music and this really is up there, it really is. Just brilliant.

Gardenback Should be in the same conversation as Loveless, Souvlaki, and Nowhere. Super ethereal, warm, uplifting, and heartfelt. Truly an incredible experience from start to finish. Don't pass this album up, it's absolutely amazing. Favorite track: Off Your Face Again.

Agent K 2009's shimmering and effervescent debut full length from the artist and his collaborators has in someways never been topped by subsequent releases.
Mainly because this release also includes tracks from compilations and new mixes from previous EP's.
All songs are given enough time to sink into your sonic soul's memory.
A great place to start to fully appreciate Daniel Land's contributions to the genre. Favorite track: Run Silent, Run Deep.

A magnificent, magical and monolithic slice of shoegaze beauty. Sounds like Slowdive reimagined by Phil Spector.

You can't help but think this is the kind of thing the late John Peel would have loved.

A dazzling array of atmospheric, mesmerising excursions, serves up a whole range of twists and turns with every subsequent listen.

Like Spiritualized with added goosebumps, or My Bloody Valentine given a bucolic country-pop makeover. Expect these gorgeous shoegaze anthems to quietly sneak up on you and steal your heart.


released November 2, 2009

Performed by Daniel Land and his trusted friends and collaborators over a period of two years, the album features twelve tracks including 'Within The Boundaries' and 'Benjamin's Room' which were mixed by Ulrich Schnauss and Mark Peters.
