Vinyl LP pressing. 2010 release. Soft Landing is all about respect. Sure, they love our environment and our womenfolk, but there is also a sincere appreciation for musical styles both near and far. Taking an entrenched understanding of Jorge Ben, percolating the groove of Dirty Projectors and incorporating all there is to learn from Italo disco and Brazilian Tropicalia, Pendleton, Oregon-born guitarist and singer Paul Collins crafts a sound bereft of irony and deep, deep, deep with heart. Rounded out by Perrin Cloutier (drums) and Mike Lawless (guitar, bass, Farfisa, Moog), Soft Landing plummets into your mind while expanding out into the stratosphere.
