Music Millennium

Full color Digipak. No Guitar (Deluxe Edition) combines the original album with two instrumental bonus tracks from the sessions, "Cavalry" and "C2", a lush and intricate collection that covers a ton of ground-from the bittersweet jangle of power-pop, to indie-folk, Midwestern emo, and much more. You can hear shades of shoegaze in "Hi-Elixir", where a massive wall of fuzzy guitars recalls My Bloody Valentine; "Patience" has a sweet-and-sour bite that recalls acts like Archers of Loaf and Shudder to Think; while "URDoM" swings and sways with a tapestry of guitars reminiscent of American Football and Mineral. The album marks the latest evolution for cross-continental duo Bernie Gelman and Joseph Brandel, who first met in high school and have been fusing their own unique musical sensibilities ever since, with Gelman operating out of the San Francisco Bay Area while Brandel currently resides in Japan. Highly anticipated new album from Curling. Press coverage on recent releases includes reviews and features in Northern Transmissions, Psychedelic Baby Magazine, Start Track, Jangle Pop Hub, and more. UK/EU Publicity handled by Chris Carr & Mal Smith. "... this is the sound of the days before smartphones and the Internet got in the way of seeking adventure, of not knowing what the band sounded like before going to watch them, of taking a punt on an album that you actually had to buy to hear." - Monolith Cocktail // "No Guitar squares all the previous works, making the songs much more impressionistic and imposing, at the same time moving away from the lo-fi trace that is common in their last two works, making the story really unpredictable and exciting" - Northern Transmissions // "... a remarkable sonic pastiche of many genres and eras." - American Pancake // "... drives a sound that is effortless, cloaking the heavy thematic undertones such as isolation, romantic heartbreak, and the loss of a loved one. The lush and intricate songs cover a myriad of stylistic grounds, from power-pop's punchy bittersweetness and rustling indie folk to the openhearted intricacy of Midwestern emo." - Ghettoblaster
