Here is another sneak peek from UK chamber pop/twisted folk artist Windmill. His latest Puddle City Racing Lights comes out July 15th on Friendly Fire in the US. After much acclaim from the UK press, people stateside such as USA’s Pop Candy, RCRD LBL, Catbird Seat, XLR8R and many others are saying very nice things. As an added bonus, Windmill has recorded his take on Elliott Smith’s classic “Pitseleh”. Enjoy!

“Matthew “Windmill” Dillion’s singing voice is a squeaky, near-hysterical thing, full of hairline splinters that suggest insanity, hilarity or a bit of both; Jad Fair meets Daniel Johnston, only you don’t feel so compelled to worry about his general well-being…recalling late Flaming Lips circa The Soft Bulletin and Why? circa Elephant Eyelash: resonant, plangent piano chords crashing raggedly and endearingly in place or gushing into swirling polyphonic eddies.” Paper Thin Walls
