What they are saying about “Slow Dawns For Lost Conclusions”

- Buzzbands LA

“cinematic, big-vista threnodies dusted with tumbleweed Americana” 7.4
- Pitchfork

“seamless succession of well-composed ephemeral gems”
- LA Record

“a glorious bit of slowly emerging psych-Americana that makes me feel like dawn is breaking and so is my heart.”
- Stereogum

“Bell Gardens, an outfit that specializes in music bordering on the religious, the revelatory and the profoundly beautiful… ”
- Flipside Reviews

“haunting acid-folk, pastoral chamber psych and pedal-steel sprinkled country-gospel subtly hoisting of the heaviest heart and soothing of the most savage breast.”
- Shindig! Magazine

“The result is an enormous, elegiac sound that hails from similarly wide-open, lunar country fields as Mojave 3, and evokes Spiritualized in its softer (and more sober) moments.”
- A.V. Club

“deftly mellowed mix of Americana, folk, gospel, and orchestral pop on offer here. With pedal steel, strings and trumpet adding melancholic texture to the spacious, softly sung arrangements”
- MOJO Magazine

“enough delicate sonic textures to satisfy their more avant-garde inclined fans wrapped around an unhurried, tuneful folk melody”
- Entertainment Weekly

“Take Us Away induces a sense of bliss, abandon and forgetfulness that warrants repeat visits, becoming more hypnotic with each listen.”
- The Metropolist

“unfurling delicately amid tearful cascades of lip biting hymnal symphonic spirals that succulently bathe listening spaces in the immense caress of sighing seafaring overtures”
- The Sunday Experience

“BG are craftspeople, sculpting sound, a very big sound,”
- Monolith Cocktail

“Demure concerns addressed in heart-piercing directness, scant demands stand beneath beautiful hues while Bell Gardens’ delicate, speckled moods rise in majestic splendor”
- Maximum Ink

“I was instantly drawn into the band’s enchanting, mystical melodies.  Having just released their second album, this LA ensemble deal in cinematic, heart-wrenching creations.”
- Gig Slutz

“a beautiful album of dream pop lullabies, Slow Dawns For Lost Conclusions.”
- The Underground Of Happiness

“She’s Stuck in the Endless Loop of Her Decline is a monster, an emperor, a cathedral of melancholy; overloaded with the most bittersweet chord changes, and weepy harmonies you can imagine.”
- Incendiary Mag

“textured variation of Americana where psyche-rock and folk ideas are blurred in against hazy, experimental and whispered harmonies”
- Inforty

“flows out of the speakers like it should be heard in a beautiful cathedral, gives me goosebumps of pure joy.”
- The Wandering Lamb

“these atmospheric songs have a calming effect. I want to sleep inside them like a sensory deprivation chamber.”
- Recordsinmylife
