Lefse releases new Twin Peaks-esque LP by gloom pop dude Cemeteries this October

Imagine the bastard love child of Julee Cruise and The Smiths (yes, all of them), growing up and watching Muppet Babies alongside contemporary gloom pop acts Minks and Violens, everybody smiling through their suburban sadness and learning how to share together. That bastard love child would grow up into Buffalo native Kyle J. Reigle, or as he’s known on the “sad teens taping tracks off the college radio” circuit, Cemeteries. (Let’s just all pretend teens still do this, okay? It was once like, an essential rite of passage for sad teens everywhere.)

Fortunately, Lefse Records is around to do the fancied-up version of taping songs off the radio, i.e. “releasing records.” And so it is that Cemeteries’ new album, The Wilderness, shall be brought into the world mere days away from Halloween, on October 23, and that Mr. Reigle will gloriously join the ranks of Lefse artists like How to Dress Well and Youth Lagoon. Inspired by classic horror films and the music of frequent David Lynch collaborator Angelo Badalamenti, The Wilderness is the product of six months spent recording in Reigle’s spare room. Fans eager for an end-of-summer dose of Twin Peaks-ian dreamy angst can get listening to the first single, also called “The Wilderness,” on SoundCloud.
