Heavy Rotation: Muddy Rivers by Lightships


Lightships is the solo project of Gerard Love, the most sunshine and melody drenched member of Teenage Fanclub.

Muddy Rivers is taken from his debut solo album Electric Cable and breezes effervescently from the speakers; dreamily washing its echo-laden flutes, keys and chiming open-chords over the listener.

When I listen to this track, my mind can’t help but drift away to a Sofia Coppola-inspired landscape; all grainy sepia sunsets and seasides, warmth and tone; Love’s gentle delivery lilting like a lullaby, another one of his simplest and sweetest melodies.
