Take a German/British duo channeling late '60s folk-psych and electronica pioneers like Wendy & Bonnie, The Feminine Complex and The United States of America, mix in equal parts obsessive record collecting and a background in jangly indiepop (with previous releases on Slumberland and Matinée), add vintage equipment from Joe Watson's studio (Stereolab/The High Llamas) and guest trumpeter Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor), and there you have it: Into the Woods by The Happy Couple. Quiet piano melodies, guitar noise, and bleeps of all kinds are entangled in unusual song structures to create a sound that is restrained yet exuberant, complex yet accessible. About leaving, coming home, and the journey in-between, Into the Woods reveals its subtleties with repeated listenings.
