DEPARTURE LOUNGE, "OUT THERE"
The debut DepartureLounge comes in the form of a 7-track EP in the UK from Bella Union andan 11-track LP in the USA through Flydaddy.
Songs like "The New You"and "Johnny A" get treatments from Simon Raymonde and scream forattention from fans of more intelligent Brit-Pop, while the "Starport"and "Late Night Drive" add a dimension of deeper listening withimprovisational sounding dreaminess. One of the fun additions on the USversion is a cover of "They Don't Know," made popular by Tracey Ullmanin the mid-80s. It's a wonderful release in both forms but I'd highlyrecommend going for the more complete release.
