Belle Adair – Tuscumbia

I’ve known the name Belle Adair for a year or two, but last night after the Super Bowl I did some online record shopping around 6 am, bought their album Tuscumbia and learned that they are actually The Clientele. Oh well, of course they aren’t, but damn I keep on thinking the mellow sweet pop melancholy of The Clientele all the time while listening to this beautiful album. It’s not a bad thing. In fact, I couldn’t be more happy about it. I absolutely love the early Clientele and perhaps part of the reason for everything I just wrote is that I hear them everywhere I roam. And there’s definitely some Teenage Fanclub vibes too on songs like Status Quo and Neptune City. If I didn’t know, I sure wouldn’t guess that they are from Alabama, USA. The crossroad of TFC, The Clientele and California country. This is just too much. I can’t take it. I will soon pass out of happiness. Before that happens. This is Neptune City from the new Belle Adair album that is now out and available on Single Lock Records.
