The Golden Spike by Sky Larkin

9/10 Phil 06 February 2009
The Sky Larkin album has landed in all it's fine glory. The Golden Spike is 12 tracks of pure quality indie pop. Each year I like about one indie album (on average).... Last year it was These New Puritans and the year before it was the Young Knives and I think this year it's gonna be this one. I've been reasonably taken by the singles but I've not been bothered to take 'em. I decided to just wait for the album and I'm pleased I did. This is well decent indie pop and it makes me think everything isn't all completely shite after all. Strong indie pop tunes, smart catchy vocals and it's got a really full sound (produced by John Goodmanson who's done Sleater Kinney and Death Cab For Cutie). Musically there's bits of lots of indie bands in there.... But the ones that spring to mind are Velocity Girl, Tsunami and Sleater Kinney. After hearing this a few times I don't think these will be a flash in the pan. The strength of the music on the album makes me think there's some longevity about 'em and I'd like to think they'll be kicking about for a while. Brian reckons there's a bit of Love is All in there as well. Smashing melodic jerky indie pop music which is doing the biz for me. Lovely.
