What is it with the US indie underground? Why is it they can't leave the 80s Brit post-punk/indie scene alone? I'm not moaning - this album is mint. Just lay back and from the offset listen to New Order stroking Felt in a dusty cupboard. Add some other soft, hazy mellow fabric of your choice and you've got a fine bizarre love triangle. The wondrous single 'Hamilton Road' reminds me of the very loveliest tunes by Leeds' own Spectrals (his UK spiritual cousins, I reckon) then it all goes 'dinky lovelorn lo-fi strum land' again & I feel a little flicker of joy up my spine & a faint tear in my eye. This lad, he's got one real sweet nature lazing just beneath his wistful shambling tunes indeed. His effortless employment of emotionally stimulating chords is quietly electrifying! He also knows his way around analogue electronics very intuitively. 'The Razor's Edge' sees him forging some kinda psychic link with The Wirral's Forest Swords, then he'll casually throw us an idyllic summery folk-laden instrumental infused with heartfelt contentment!! This album, is stuffed to the gills with countless amazing celebratory tunes that aren't scared of just ambling amiably or drowsily chuffing away, deliriously self-absorbed. I think he's got a really nice voice - dreamy & slacker-ish but he cleverly interjects the 'hits' with some corking instrumental interludes that bring even more joy to my table. Business Lady is a little in love with this charming chap & I for one can't blame her. Shame she's away for a couple of days battering skins in her mad grunge band, I'd like to sit & listen to some more of this beaut with her....
