    “For those who know the Pajamas and their music, the new album will be another step forward. For those who don’t, the music above will give you an idea of why many of us hold the band in such high regard. I steal this from the one-sheet which came with the CD to give you an idea of what the album entails.

    The album tells the story of a lighthouse keeper, the mysterious woman he finds on his beach after a storm one night and what happens from there. Who is Juliet? Fallen from a star, a mermaid or maybe just a mysterious woman? It is sort of a sci-fi romance micro-rock-opera seasoned with a pinch of gothic. Most of the songs are short, tied into two long medleys. Many were in fact recorded in that fashion, with one song running right into the next. Bang, bang and onto the next song.

    They fashion albums, do the Pajamas. And Jeff Kelly has honed his craft as songwriter and arranger. If you don’t have any Pajamas albums in your collection, To the End of the Sea is a great place to start.” Frank Gutch Jr. – Segarini: Don’t Believe A Word I Say

The Green Pajamas - When Juliet Smiles

To The End Of The Sea is The Green Pajamas first new studio album since 2012’s Death By Misadventure. For this album, Jeff Kelly went to his roots, re-embracing his love of 1960’s pop. It takes much more of an organic approach to the recording process than his work of recent years. Jeff wanted to reach back to Pajamas albums like Strung Behind The Sun and All Clues Lead To Meagan’s Bed and go with that sort of aesthetic again: sound effects, backwards guitars, lots of vocal harmonies, violin and cello.

The album tells the story of a lighthouse keeper, the mysterious woman he finds on his beach after a storm one night and what happens from there. Who is Juliet? Fallen from a star, a mermaid or maybe just a mysterious woman? It’s a sort of a sci-fi romance micro-rock opera, seasoned with a pinch of the gothic. Most of the 18 songs are short, tied into two long medleys. Many were in fact recorded in that fashion, with one song running right into the next. Bang, bang and then on to the next song.

To The End Of The Sea is everything you’ve come to expect from a Green Pajamas album, great songs, great musicianship and titillating production. After 31 Pajamas albums, somehow it is still beautiful, somehow still mysterious.

They fashion albums, do the Pajamas. And Jeff Kelly has honed his craft as songwriter and arranger. If you don’t have any Pajamas albums in your collection, To the End of the Sea is a great place to start.” Frank Gutch Jr. – Segarini: Don’t Believe A Word I Say
