Fake Noise from a Box of Toys
Released 2007 on Bella Union.
Produced by Jamie Seyberth and Ted Scarlet
Fake Noise From a Box of Toys was the fourth full-length from The Autumns. It broke radically new ground for the group, displaying a more aggressively swift, though still captivating, sound. The songs range from the thrillingly intricate and infectious Clem -- which one critic described as "Shellac covering Big Star" -- to the charming, lullaby-like The Beautiful Boot. Features the singles Boys and Killer in Drag.
Released 2004 on Bella Union.
Produced by Jamie Seyberth
At last, The Autumns have captured the energy of their live show without compromising their aesthetic. Former producer, Simon Raymonde of the Cocteau Twins describes the record as "sumptuous, visionary, ambitious, magnificent and unique in many ways." You will not be disappointed.
In the Russet Gold of this Vain Hour
Released 2000 on Risk Records.
Produced by Simon Raymonde
The second full-length from The Autumns marked a significant departure from their earlier sound. Stark, angular, and - by most accounts - dark, Russet Gold is a beautiful, sophisticated collection of songs. High points include Bicycle and live favorite Boy with the Aluminum Stilts. "A heady mixture of textured guitars, string sections, and earnest lyrics." (Alternative Press) " ...moody, quiet, and lovely...a very worthwhile record." (MTV Online).
The Angel Pool
Released 1997 on Risk Records.
Produced by Andrew D. Prickett
Established the band as "the top third-generation shoegazer band" and garnered a miraculous amount of positive press: "A hypnotic pop masterpiece" (Flipside); "**** - a fine debut" (Allmusic.com); "melodically pristine" (CMJ). Features Sunblush and Glass in Lullabies.
Singles & Eps
Boys is the first single from Fake Noise From a Box of Toys. It signals The Autumns' adoption of an unmistakably more vigorous and dynamic musical posture. Razor-sharp guitars engage a rhythmic juggernaut, propping up a soaring chorus that just might be one for the books. B-side Joy is a glistening pop gem, as delicate as it is beautiful.
