Album Review

Pigeons – “Liasons” – [Soft Abuse]

lombard   11/23/2010   A Library, CD

This brand new release “Liasons” from Bronx duo Pigeons is simply gorgeous. Their third album is a pleasantly sedate blend of lo-fi psychedelia-infused pop. While listening I was reminded a little bit of Kendra Smith’s Guild of Temporal Adventures with moments of a slowed-down, Quaaluded Strawberry Switchblade. It has a far-away folky feel, with muffled vocals that sound like they are coming out of an AM radio. Flute pops in here and there, as well as some dramatic organ. There’s a swank French flavor on two tracks (including a Serge Gainsbourg cover).
