From the opening dreamy glide of 'Astronomy', I know I'm gonna like this album, loads. Old skool-indie pop with verve and bite. Nat has a proper sweet breathy voice and the song just vaults along with propulsive grace, tender hooks riding a spirited rhythm section. The production throughout is bright and airy, coating both the perkier and more atmospheric tracks with a deft intricate soul. Anyone who enjoyed the playful B&S stylings of her former band Monkey Swallows the Universe will have super fun with this album which sometimes weighs in like maybe The Long Blondes sparring with Stereolab as some loose pointer as to the style/appeal of these lovely songs. They also sometimes like to dwell in folksier ponderous territories which adds depth and variety to an album spilling with brittle warmth and a delicate class. Another top quality release from long-running Sheffield purist visionaries Thee SPC. Kudos for the lovely thick lyric and photo booklet too, makes this a physical purchase extra worth owning!!!
