Death In The Garden, Blood On The Flowers





Irving’s Death In The Garden, Blood On The Flowers standout track “The Look Of Flowers That Are Looked At,” is a lovely and melodic little ditty echoing heartbreak that other bands like Pavement have done so well. With the help of producers/engineers Elliot Chenault (Irving), Phil Ek (The Shins, Modest Mouse, Built To Spill), Aaron Espinoza (Earlimart), Jim Fairchild (Grandaddy) and Tom Biller (Jon Brion), this album promises to be an guaranteed indie gem. “I Want To Love You In My Room” is a fun, lo-fi, psychedelic, catchy tune that will not stop playing in your head after the first listen. “Lovely Just Like Her” features Steven Scott and Brian Canning’s beautiful rhythm guitaring alongside Stephen Malkmus meets Lou Reed-type vocals, showcasing how well the band members compliment each other and work together. “Jen, Nothing Matters To Me” is the perfect song to appeal to those who love the '80s post modern/new wave sounds like The Cure. Channeling and capturing the '80s new wave sensibilities through the underrated keyboard, the song makes the listener visualize a cool red Roland keyboard. With plans to hit SXSW and heavily tour this year, Irving is definitely a band to watch. The album is set to hit the streets on April 4 via Eenie Meenie Records, but if you can't wait, their myspace page has some tracks to check out.
