6/10 Mike Staff review, 15 April 2014

London hopefuls The Mispers release their second single this week. The debut passed me by entirely so this is my first exposure to this lot. A side 'Brother' is an epic bit of indie pop with windswept violin and some cool little palm muted guitar melodies, led by a plangent vocal bleat that's somewhere between Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and that lad from Razorlight. It's quite dramatic stuff.

'Trading Cards' is on the other side. They quieten down a bit here and I'm struggling with the singer's voice even more, but instrumentally it's not too bad. The guitarist is once again throwing in some cool little palm muted bits, the fiddler continues to fiddle away, and the band switch between a sad lollop and celebratory Roxy Music-ish pop grooves with nimble efficiency. I have mixed feelings, it's all a bit slick and grandiose and I'm struggling with the guy's voice but the band are tight and the arrangements are sometimes interesting so I'm filing this one under "not to my taste" rather than "total disaster".
