sc320-1

“”The duo approximates the sound of 100 years from now, when some future generation might find the cultural detritus of the late 20th century all baked together in the California sun.A.V. Club

“There was a moment, listening to Gardens & Villa’s new song “Fixations,” that I was transported back to 1974″NPR Music

“The sound of a band reaching its potential, Music For Dogs is fascinating in its textures and instrumentation, yet infectious on a visceral level”ROLLING STONE AUSTRALIA

“Organic and synthetic feels like a nod back to Brian Eno and David Bowies collective 70s freakout”KUTX

Music For Dogs by Gardens & Villa is out today, worldwide. They start a nationwide tour in September to support the release. Watch their video for “Fixations” below. Buzzbands just released a great interview that touches on their DIY space in LA, how making this record differed from the last two records, and the subject material behind these songs.

LISTEN // Gardens & Villa’s ‘Music For Dogs’ Now Streaming On Noisey, Album Out Aug. 21st

Gardens & Villa’s new album, Music For Dogs, is now streaming via Noisey. It’ll be up until the record’s release next Friday, August 21st via Secretly Canadian. And if you haven’t yet watched Maximize, a short film about the band’s new record by director David Del Sur and cinematographer SL Perlin, please do so above!


“We thought the label would drop us.. Our girlfriends dropped us. Our drummer of six years left. We were broke and we sort of came home with a feeling of “is this the end?” That’s when Adam and I decided to move to LA and give it one last hurrah. We felt like we wanted to go out with a bang and make the album we always wanted to make! For us and for the sake of love and fun. We immediately started recording demos and sent them to our label desperately hoping they would finance us and give us another chance. I remember when we showed them the demos of Everybody” and “Fixations” and they kind of freaked out. We wanted to redeem ourselves and everything sort of fell into place! We discovered a lot and fell back in love with the craft. We tracked most of the record live, to tape (like our first LP), and did almost all of it in seven days. So happy to get it out there.”
Chris Lynch (of Gardens & Villa)

Gardens & Villa will begin their U.S. tour in mid-September, with performances spanning three months and the entire country. All tour dates are below.

WATCH // Gardens & Villa Promote Upcoming Album ‘Music For Dogs’ With ‘Maximize’ Documentary


“Are machines making me less me, or am I more because of machines?”

In anticipation of their upcoming album Music For Dogs, Gardens & Villa teamed up with director David Del Sur and cinematographer SL Perlin for the mini-doc ‘Maximize’. Shot purely on a 35mm and Super 8, it “presents Los Angeles as if viewed through the eyes of 1920s avant-garde provocateurs Dziga Vertov and Sergei Eisenstein, giving an insight into the ideas, doubts and reflections swirling around the bands’ heads as they wrote and recorded their new LP, Music For Dogs” (Via HUCK Magazine)

LISTEN // Gardens & Villa Share Track “Everybody” Via Stereogum, Album ‘Music For Dogs’ Out 8/21

While the release of Gardens & Villa new album, Music For Dogs, is still a few weeks away, you can now alleviate the pains of waiting with their new single, “Everybody”, via Stereogum. Coating social commentary in undulating piano, the song broaches the subject of social dissipation in a digitized world, hinting at a desire for something more real. ‘“Everybody” is a song inspired by our modern love lives,” says Gardens & Villa’s Chris Lynch. “Technology fueled jealousy, lust, vanity, voyeurism, and network personas, topped off with a personal curiosity and willingness to participate in what often resembles science fiction.” As with each song on Music For Dogs, Everybody aligns with Gardens & Villa search for unison between intimacy and personhood. Check out “Everybody” above or via Stereogum.
