Here’s an album by By The Sea, who specialise in that ‘60s-influenced reverb-drenched wishy-washy MOR-pop that Real Estate are so much better than everybody else at. Not to say it’s all that bad, all that reverb creates an almost oppressive wall of sound in places despite the gentle tunes and there’s a brooding The National-esque feel in places that some people will like, and at its best it’s kind of reminding me of Deerhunter, although Business Lady’s telling it straight in the office as they launch into a particularly atmospheric section: “I hate these fucking Lion King drumbeats people keep coming up with.”

In fairness there are some decent songs on here, the womby, drifty, nostalgic sound can create interesting results and at worst it’s still listenable but I’m struggling to find moments to pick out as real highlights. As atmosphere music it’s very pleasant and comforting though. I can see it being an uncontroversial one to put on when you bring friends back to yours after a night out.
