As a guitarist in Porches., Kevin Farrant spends a fair amount of time working out psychedelic pop songs. But Farrant’s also long been at work on his own batch of indie-pop songs, and on August 12, Father/Daughter Records will release the debut album from his other project, Rivergazer. Below, The A.V. Club premieres “Whimper,” one of the tracks on Random Nostalgia, and an updated take on the kind of garage-pop that’s been around for decades. Still, Farrant supplies it with plenty of flourishes that keep it moving forward, instead of getting stuck in the past.
Pre-orders for Random Nostalgia can be made at the Father/Daughter store.
