I Had To Say This
Label: Pointy Records
This collection of the Clientele's initial singles and EP cuts is so cohesive that it plays like a well thought out debut LP. Suburban Light offers gauzy, '60s-etched, rain-strewn guitar pop, full of polite English lyrics flush with dreamy imagery. There's no denying the pastoral pull of such tracks as "Monday's Rain" and "Reflections After Jane."
