Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures – Gin

3 Mar

Gin, the new album from Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures, is out today! You can get your copy on gin coloured vinyl with full liner notes or as a digipack CD with lyrics booklet from our shop.

“The Wave Pictures’ classy post-punkish bite is a great foil to Brinks’ whimsy on these unhinged, loose-limbed story songs. Sometimes gin makes you win as much as sin.”
NME

“typically rich in a variety of sounds and structures; the songs are looser, more playful and all the more endearing because of it”
Loud and Quiet

“a joyous and celebratory record which crackles and sparkles with a joie de vivre which is sadly lacking from all too many of Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures’ contemporaries”
Folk Radio

“Gin rises above the swiftness of its creation, thanks to these few detours that Brinks and The Wave Pictures take around their usual territory. The fact that the catchiest track from this session – the single ‘Orange Juice’ – is not included just underlines that these guys seem to seamlessly slot together when they hit the studio”
Drowned In Sound

“there are lead guitar breaks which are loud and clean, like a messy second-grunge-era approximation of the great early electric guitarists from the ’50s like Les Paul and Jimmy Bryant, real nimble but a bit anarchic too”
Norman Records

“Brinks’ adds an earnest and romantic edge as compared to The Wave Pictures’ slightly more irreverent stance, with drunken recollection seeming to inform his storytelling.”
Drunken Werewolf

“There is a wonderful naïve feel to the album, more impressionistic than precise. It has an intensity like Gauguin, bright and colourful but still with that all is not right in paradise feel.”
Fatea Magazine

“Gin [is] a fitting title for an album brimming with snickered lyrics and tipsy melodies”
The Big Takeover
