Peaking Lights 936 on Limited Edition 180g LP
2009’s Imaginary Falcons was its own savvy slushpile of tape-hissy drift-dub haze pop, no question, but 936 takes every facet of husband and wife duo Peaking Lights mighty diamond and shines it even further. The songwriting is killer; “All The Sun That Shines,” “Amazing & Wonderful,” “Tiger Eyes (Laid Back),” all seep into your mindstream and float there like melodic gold dust.
Indra Dunis’ silky soul-jazz keys and tranced vocals have never sounded so exquisite, and Aaron Coyes busts out the best bass/drum loops and sneaky dub guitar of his musical lifetime. It is a hauntingly beautiful and intensely immersive record that merges elements of dub, psych, minimal house, disco and krautrock with a distinct pop sensibility and provides a great window into a wonderfully close, creative and prolific songwriting partnership.
Recorded by Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios in Iowa City and mastered in Berlin, 936 retains the cool crate-digger grit of their earlier highlights, but within a much more vivid spectrum of sound. Limited edition repress of Peaking Lights’ seminal album 936 on heavyweight 180g vinyl with exclusive poster.
