Official repress of Love & Regret, the long out-of-print 2012 debut album from LA-based post punk outfit Cold Showers

Cold Showers, a unit formed in Los Angeles, CA in 2010, fuses the brash power of their shoegaze predecessors with the smoky compulsions of accessible synth pop standards. Cold Showers fits comfortably within the dusty catalog of Factory Records, if only for their modern interpretation of the romantic isolation that signified that long past era. Piston-precision rhythms and angular guitar patterns that drive along songs such as “Alight” and “BC” sit comfortably alongside the opposing raucous-tinged tracks such as “I Don’t Mind” and “Seminary”. This is the pervasive pop mode against which Cold Showers cast themselves. Versatile, memorable and romantically wistful are all common themes that listeners relate to when diving into Love & Regret

Looking back on the past seven years and the album’s ultimate impact, Love and Regretcreated and solidified the band’s stark identity in a single, well crafted release. While their early singles on Art Fag Mexican Summer introduced listeners to Cold Showerssimply as a band, Love & Regret debuted the group as something to be taken more seriously. Songs that are intended to be personally unpacked with the listener’s pleasure and heartbreak as personal reminders of more innocent times. 

DAIS Records introduces the 2019 repress of “Love & Regret in tandem with the release of Cold Shower’s third album, Motionless, and is packaged with alternative cover art, mirroring the limited hand-screened “Art Edition” the label and band released in 2016 and is released on standard black vinyl, as well as limited edition coloured.
