The Heavy Blinkers 

The Night and I Are Still So Young

The Heavy Blinkers
The Night and I Are Still So Young
The long-awaited, long-delayed follow-up to the Blinkers’ brilliant Better Weather (2001!) is 40 minutes of the most romantic melancholia you’ve ever heard. Cohesive but not repetitive, grandiose without preten- sion, The Night and I is music no one’s made for decades. It maintains the ’60s Brian Wilson-influenced pop sensibilities of the first three albums but drops the sugary love songs for the likes of “Unreasonably Sad.” Sorrow should be so sweet.
