AllMusic Review by

Christina Rosenvinge's third Smells Like Records outing, CONTINENTAL 62, works much of the same magic as its stellar precursor, FOREIGN LAND, and with many similar star indie musicians in the fold as well (Sonic Youth's Lee Renaldo and Steve Shelley among them). The recipe here is at once cinematic and delicate; it's music that's perfect for a rainy day tea and a swooning heart. With nods to Astrud Gilberto, Francoise Hardy, and Laetitia Sadler, Rosenvinge's gentle vocals keep the tunes constantly unfolding in ways that are sprightly but not twee, melancholy but not indulgent.
