We Are Catchers is not a plural as you might assume but one chap, Peter Jackson. He is catcher. He's gone and made an album of lovely psych-pop just like they used to in the '60s, heavy influence from both Beatles and Beach Boys clearly present. Second track 'Tap Tap Tap' provides an early highlight with heavily reverbed piano and vocals and falsetto Beach Boys 'whoo-oo's galore.   The piano and vocals are to the fore throughout but the album has a kind of hazy feel, they're throwing the reverb around like it's going out of fashion which sometimes gives it a slight Phil Spector vibe and the songs are carefully crafted bits of '60s pop built to stand up to repeated listening. The piano line in 'Isabella' reminds me of 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer'. It's all pleasant enough but a little lacking in those quirky touches that give a pop album a bit of personality.   Those Beach Boys harmonies are really well executed, but the rest is kind of professional but anonymous pleasantness that makes me think of Crowded House or Stornoway. My feelings are mixed but it's far from a disaster, uplifting in its best moments but occasionally a little dreary.
