Track Of The Day #576: The Luxembourg Signal – Distant Drive

Dream-pop Supergroup The Luxembourg Signal take us on a ‘Distant Drive’ for our awesome track of the day. Spiralling off into the galaxy like a rotating, lit up comet, fired by drum shots, electric cartwheeling guitars and lashed by the hypnotic allure of Beth Arzy’s shimmering vocals, as she stares into the middle distance and contemplates what it’s all worth(“I am here life gets better”). Like the meeting point between the swoonesome pop of the Sundays, the intergalactic gaze of Spaceman 3 and the achingly bittersweet landscapes of Mazzy Star.Gorgeously otherworldly pop!

It’s lifted from their sumptuous new album available via Shelflife on September 30th on limited edition vinyl, cd and digital formats. The first 100 LP pre-orders direct from the label website will be available in electric blue vinyl.

‘The Luxembourg Signal, while being a brand new project, features members who have been playing together for years as part of the much adored Aberdeen (Sarah Records). Several years, several bands — including most recently Fonda and Trembling Blue Stars — and a few reunions later, Johnny Joyner, Beth Arzy and Brian Espinosa started The Luxembourg Signal with Betsy Moyer and Ginny Pitchford. Piecing together almost ten years of ideas and nabbing any recording time possible with Beth when visiting Los Angeles from the UK, their debut LP is finally here.’
