Another beautiful and entrancing record from Samara Lubelski, Parallel Suns follows up right where she left of with Spectacular of Passage and knocks your ears spiraling into a lush sonic utopia. Lubelski's solo work, in contrast to her contributions to Hall of Fame and Tower Recordings is decidedly poppy, but swaddled in sweet hushed vocals and light melodic touches that swerve somewhere just below the pop-psych radar. Samara seems to radiate calm in her music, the guitars and subtle keys shimmer with a mellifluous sound that is never sickly sweet but rather buoyant pulling your spirits upward each time you listen. The album was recorded in Germany with her collaborators from Metabolismus and finished in Brooklyn's famed Rare Book Room Studio and features contributions from P.G. Six and Hamish Kilgour of The Clean among others.
