David Gedge redoing his Wedding Present band's 2011 album 'Valentina' in the full lush orchestrated band Cinerama.
David Gedge's long-held dream was to release a Wedding Present and a Cinerama album at the same time, with different versions of the same songs on each. The Wedding Present album would be typically energetic and guitar-driven; Cinerama's would be highly arranged and, well, cinematic. Even though he missed out on having them released concurrently, he realized most of his dream with the release of Cinerama's Valentina in 2015. Recorded a year after the debut of the Wedding Present's Valentina, the album wraps Gedge's songs in lush strings, tinkling pianos, showbiz-y horns, and swooning female backing vocals. The arrangements are courtesy of Pedro Vigil, and the vocals by ex-Wedding Present bassist Terry de Castro. Vigil does a fantastic job of taking the simple Wedding Present template and expanding it into a widescreen Technicolor explosion of sound that fills every nook of available space with some kind of fancy instrument or other.
