Constant Smiles – Kenneth Anger

Constant Smiles – the dream-pop collective led by Ben Jones – has released their latest LP Kenneth Anger. The album has received rave reviews from both Allmusic and Brooklyn Vegan, and Ben goes into some of the inspirations for the record with Brooklyn Vegan and Talkhouse. I mixed & mastered this record at Studio Windows, which was largely self-recorded and features a wide range of collaborators – Ryan Jewell on drums, Spike Currier on bass, and numerous others on synths, strings, and vocals. The LP is more synth-focused than its predecessor Paragons, but the songs remain equally earnest and catchy. Kenneth Anger is out now on Sacred Bones.
