It's been sunny for weeks now and although it's going to snow next week (true!), we already have a host of lovely summery albums available for those who, like me, want to waste away the rest of their days sitting in the back garden whilst the sun shines. This one is from long term Teenage Fanclub man Gerard Love along with another Teenage Fanclub dude, the old Teenage Fanclub drummer, a Pastel and a Belle and Sebastian. Never let it be said that the Glasgee scene is anything but incestuous. These old pros know a thing or two about creating gorgeous laid back pop melodies though and this is no exception. It's lovely throughout. Obviously as you may expect it sounds a LOT like Teenage Fanclub but splendid tracks like the single 'Sweetness in Her Spark' sound tremendously like currently-missing-in-action pop masters The Pernice Brothers. It's utterly delightful. I'm a soppy old sod and I fall for this kind of stuff hook, line and sinker every single time. It verges on the soporific at times and a lot of the tunes drift by in a sleepy heat haze but this will sound great drifting out the window on one of these warm spring/summer days.
