After spending a solid year tediously crafting tunes in their home town of Santa Barbara, CA, Gardens and Villa took their work north to record and solidify what they had accomplished with producer Richard Swift, who has most recently been praised for his work with Damien Jurado. Out now on Cool Summer Records, the “Black Hills”/ “Orange Blossom” 7″ single is a slice of something truly unique resulting from the in-studio collaboration of Swift and the Gardens boys. Drawing equally from neo-folk, New-Wave, and retro-electronica, Gardens and Villa’s sound is both nostalgia drenched and dance floor ready. Swift has certainly left his mark on this one, capturing what Gardens and Villa do in a genuinely organic way, creating a warm, rich, and tangible sound.
