Crammed Discs are pleased to present Two Roomed Motel by Scott Gilmore
From the heart of the strange, suburban environment known as the San Fernando Valley, a vast sprawl on the edges of Los Angeles, California, Scott Gilmore produces his own brand of seductive, beguiling and dreamy pop music.
He’s just joined the Crammed Discs roster, and his new album Two Roomed Motel will be released in March 2019. Here’s the first music video for the title track off the album, directed by Scott, and premiered by Stereogum.
He will soon be performing solo shows in the US and Europe, first shows announced:
November 20th : Brooklyn / Baby’s All Right
November 30th : Los Angeles / Eagle Rock Center for The Arts
From the media reactions to Scott Gilmore’s previous album:
One of the year’s best records to date. Scott Gilmore makes music for the moments late nights bleed into early mornings, when skies begin to shift, when you’re left alone in your own liminality.
Light, melodious, somehow simultaneously of “now” and plausibly a hitherto unheard relic from a bygone age.
A chill, whimsical listen whose compositions reveal themselves to be surprisingly complex. Full of clean-toned guitars, percolating rhythm boxes, and layer upon layer of wispy analog synthesizers, it takes its principal stylistic cues from Krautrock and library music; the album often sounds like Air’s Moon Safari or Stereolab’s Dots and Loops run through a beat-up transistor radio that’s been wrapped in cheesecloth
