'A Flourish And A Spoil’ is Pennsylvania rockers’ debut LP through Fat Possum Records. Produced by the ever-reliable John Congleton, who has previously worked with St. Vincent and Angel Olsen, its bluesy garage rock aesthetic, uplifting guitar and feedback serves as an appropriate follow-up to the band’s debut EP released earlier in 2014. Nostalgic but ragged at the edges.

6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 6th February 2015

The initial impression I got from listening to “4th and Roebling”, the opening track on The Districts debut album “A Flourish and a Spoil” was that the band sound like a post-“Is This It” Strokes with a touch of The Walkmen thrown in. By track two, “Peaches”, I felt that my first impression was correct. Basically, that’s what this sounds like. There’s a teeny bit of acoustic White Stripes present on “Suburban Smell” and “Hounds” has a catchy chorus and may be the best song on here, but It’s very samey and I can’t see it being much of a grower – it’s what-you-see-is-what-you-get indie rock. Some people will love it but really, it’s average at best. I'll be kind and give it a 6.
