A Walk Across the Rooftops
Etichetta: Confetti Records
Like a small door hidden behind ivy that leads to a secret garden, the discovery of this beautiful album can be a rite of passage for the lucky listener -- most think they were the first to hear it, and meeting other aficionados is akin to joining a select club. Financed by Linn Hi-Fi, an electronics company that created its own label to use this music to demonstrate the fidelity of its equipment, this dreamy, wistful indie-pop masterpiece from 1984 is seemingly impervious to trends, still sounding as fresh and lovely as ever. Enjoy.
