This is not an album you leap to put on when the sun is out and you feeling up, without a care in the world but this is actually, an album you may well readily put on first thing in the morning (idea for that early morning dazed train commute) or, last thing at night or just perhaps, when everything is not so rosy in your Garden.


Ex-Sparklehorse musician Adam Wiltzie, and composer Dustin O'Halloran are A Winged Victory For The Sullen. They have produced a solemn even reverential recording of beautiful music, piano, strings, an ambience woven into a spider’s web of contentment.


Seven compositions with the help of guests like Icelandic cellist Hildur Gudnadottir, as well as Erased Tapes label mate Peter Broderick on violin. A Winged Victory For The Sullen is for when you just want to shut your eyes and drift with tis record on your turntable.
