Warmy Girls is currently up for preorder on Moon Glyph's website and is available in a limited run of 500 vinyl copies.

Warmy Girls, Velvet Davenport’s third release with Moon Glyph, locates the band’s sonic architect and chief songwriter Parker Sprout displaying a rainbow of talents – talents only winked at on previous, briefer releases. Recorded in Sprout’s apartment studio last winter, the album became an effervescent brew of guitar-and-organ character sketches. Named after a feeling of affection and love, “Warmy Girls” is populated with men and women in a manner reminiscent of Ray Davies’ best Kink songs.
The music itself is also well-populated - featuring more players per song than any of Velvet Davenport’s previous outings. The result: a collection of tunes Sprout has been preparing his listeners for since he began releasing music. Layered on a four-tracker, the sounds gambol and flit, trip and shimmer beneath a mélange of bright-eyed vocal harmonies. Each of the twelve songs is an illustration of the group’s mushrooming confidence in their craft – a warmy patchwork of reclaimed riffs, wily lyrics and a tangle of ideas that surprise on first listen and reward with every return.
