The Wedding Present - Valentina mp3 album

The Wedding Present are a British indie rock group originally formed in 1985 in Leeds, England, from the ashes of the Lost Pandas. The band's music has evolved from fast-paced indie rock in the vein of their most obvious influences The Fall, Buzzcocks and Gang of Four to more varied forms. Throughout their career, they have been led by vocalist and guitarist David Gedge, the band's only constant member.

Valentina ‎(LP, Album). Mystery Date' is the kind of track that builds and in doing so you find yourself reaching for the volume control. Valentina' is a welcome return to form for The Wedding Present and enough to put the doubters' (myself included) minds to rest. Key song: Deer Caught in the Headlights. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Album · 2012 · 12 Songs. Founded in Leeds in 1985, The Wedding Present in 2012 still plays with a firm commitment to tough-sounding pop music (with only leader David Gedge standing as an original member). The guitars and drums are pure brawn, while Gedge finds indelible melodies to skirt as he rants like an angry patron at the last bar on Earth.

Seamonsters was a hard slap of an album, indie pop curdled into abrasion and dissonance, with lyrics whose barbed wit seemed like singer/guitarist David Gedge's dam to hold back much more hurtful words. That version of the Wedding Present, though- Gedge, guitarist Peter Solowka, bassist Keith Gregory, and drummer Simon Smith- is a distant memory. Valentina is essentially Gedge and his current sidemen doing a very solid impression of the Wedding Present as they were circa 1990. His lyrics are still focused on infidelity and emotional unfairness, although his characters are a lot more willing to accept culpability than they were back when he was writing songs with titles like "Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now?"

The Wedding Present s eighth studio album, Valentina, comes four years after 2008 s critically acclaimed El Rey. Recorded in the wilds of France, the suburbs of Los Angeles and the lanes of Brighton. it shimmers with near perfection. and letting the thing you love go free.
