Fashion Brigade - Fvck The Heartache

We have been told that self-care is important to mental health.  While we aren't experts on the subject, we have been called crazy often enough that taking a few precautions seems appropriate.  So today we are treating our ears very, very well. Of course, we always give our ears good music, but the current selection is especially melodic.  And being of kind disposition, we are going to share our medicine with you. Accordingly, please welcome Fvck The Heartache by Fashion Brigade.

Fashion Brigade is the project of Elia Einhorn, the driving force behind the late, lamented Scotland Yard Gospel Choir. For Fvck The Heartache Elia has fashioned 11 lush, melodic and exceptionally clever pop gems.  The magic, in addition to ace songwriting, is that each track has one or more stellar collaborators.  And what a roster - Frankie Cosmos, Exene Cervenka (of X), Thor Harris, and members of LCD Soundsystem, Dirty Projectors, Icy Demons, Prince Rama, Phosphorescent, and others.  When you file this album away, you probably will file it near Magnetic Fields, Belle and Sebastian and, of course, Scotland Yard Gospel Choir.  But you'll have time to think about it because we suspect that you won't want to file it anywhere any time soon

Fvck The Heartache is out now in vinyl and digital formats via Gentle Reminder Records.
