Known as the darker brother of The Go-Betweens, Peter Milton Walsh’s career has recently been revamped, also thanks to the collaboration with a few French labels, Microcultures and Talitres. The latter has now announced that they are reissuing A Life Of Farewells, a 1995 album previously only available on CD from the original release. The Apartments’ 1985 debut LP, The Evening Visits…And Stays Forever, had been reissued by Captured Tracks in 2015 (the year of the band’s return with No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal), testifying the renewed interest in the band.
The album will be available in vinyl, including a limited colored issue. It is a collection of airy melodies and classy arrangements, spotlighting of course Walsh’s emotional crooning. It is definitely one of the most serene and inspired releases in the musician’s career.
