Boomkat product review for:

the gentleman losers - The Gentleman Losers

When we first heard Finland’s Gentleman Losers it was as if their music had always been familiar to us, bringing to mind the instrumental wonder of Vincent Gallo’s massively overlooked ‘When’ album, coaxing dusty guitars, brushed drums and archive documentary music into an epiphany of childhood nostalgia and blissful daydreaming. To be sure, this has been the sort of album that has charmed and beguiled anyone and everyone who’s just happened to walk into the office when it’s been on – straddling that fine line between twilight beauty and dusky threat. Opening with the creased prologue of 'An Empire of Coins', The Gentleman Losers sound much as you wish Boards of Canada did - taking a water-bled guitar part then incrementally coating it in a queasy blend of crackling aural lint. Recorded at night in a reputedly haunted house that comprises part of Finland’s medieval district, The Gentleman Losers describe their music as "one part 60s movie soundtracks, one part wooden electronica, all recorded through a 50s Telefunken mixer we found abandoned in a basement". ‘The Gentleman Losers’ encapsulate a universe of quiet musical aspirations in a breezy, effortless way that’s all-too rare, managing to distil their sound into a pithy diktat : "we wanted to make music from a past that hasn't happened yet...". Album of the year.
