EDITORS’ NOTES

This remaster of The Clientele’s debut album, Suburban Light, features the original European track listing, with bonus material that includes covers, rehearsals, b-sides, and three previously unreleased songs. The original 2000 album consists of early singles recorded for a variety of indie labels. The initial idea for Suburban Light had been to rerecord some of those singles, along with others that had been demoed. But when the band attempted to work in high-end studios, they found the warmth they desired to be severely lacking, so they stuck with the lower-fi original recordings. The result was one of 2000's finest albums. This rerelease adds even more goodness, with songs such as “Porcelain” and “Monday’s Rain” presented in their "Portastudio" (home eight-track) versions and “Mary Has Brought a Change in You” being issued for the first time. Anyone who loves the sounds of Belle & Sebastian, The Apartments, Robyn Hitchcock, Trembling Blue Stars, and other somber Anglo-pop writers will feel right at home with this brilliant debut album, now expanded.

Like a late afternoon somber autumn dream!

I love this album, and it’s finally on vinyl! This is my favorite Clientele album (very special place in my heart) Now, with extra songs; I can’t be happier...
