Ashby – Looks Like You’ve Already Won

“If Tortoise or The Sea & Cake are post-rock, then Ashby is post-pop.” (All Music Guide)
“Perfect – Saint Etienne meets ‘Moon Safari’-vintage Air!” (Pete Paphides, MOJO)

For the first time on vinyl, remastered and beautifully packaged: “Looks Like You’ve Already Won” by Ashby – the critically-acclaimed little pop masterpiece from 2005. The duo from Boston – Evelyn Pope & Bill Cowie – present a lushly arranged sound that combines European movie soundtracks, Brazilian bossa nova, post-rock electronica and classic 60s pop. Like The Sea & Cake with female vocals or Broadcast with a sunnier pop quality.

Strictly limited to 500 copies.
