Vacant Gardens is Glenn Donaldson and Jem Fanvu transmogrifying Flying Saucer Attack waves of distortion and angelic vocal into magic. Also reminding a little of Sandy Denny’s Fairport if the band was Bardo Pond. Glenn Donaldson multi instrumentalist from (Skygreen Leopards, Art Museums, Reds, Pinks and Purples) and Jem Fanvu (Tune-Yards, Cavity Fang) have released under the banner of Vacant Gardens. Built on a cresting wave of static and gauzy fuzz, the song plunges Fanvu’s vocals in a soft-pink fog of sound that wafts in through ever opening. Shorebirds is a gorgeous, effusive song hovering on the edges of sleep and dream. The pair paint touches of Pale Saints and Curve alongside the usual shoegaze sightings of Slowdive. They embrace the lostness of sound, letting themselves slowly slide into dust…”  

Vinyl originally released on Tall Texan records, UK Label Tough Love Records are currently working on a reissue of both of their albums for 2022

I got turned on to Vacant Gardens following the thread of what Glenn Donaldson makes.

Released February 15th, 2021
