The Wedding Present at The Vinyl District

The Wedding Present, Going, Going… (HHBTM) Earlier in 2016 HHBTM dished wax of The Weddoes’ 2005 effort Take Fountain and follow it up here with a 2LP/DVD set of the group’s latest (available outside the US on Scopitones). It opens with a series of largely instrumental and somewhat post-rock pieces, an unusual and intriguing turn as each of the 20 tracks is accompanied by a short film pertaining to a cross-country US trip David Gedge undertook in ’14 with photographer Jessica McMillan. Overlong, but fittingly so, with a few gems including “Bells” and closer “Santa Monica.” B+
