Album Review
Natty
Reviewed 2003-11-22 
This is pop-rock, but definitely into lots of instrumentation. Over-tracked vocals and a variety of instruments abound, giving the record a diverse, disconnected flow. Sometimes it feels like someone set them loose in an elementary school music room. They also seem to be way into stop/start mechanisms. Think Badly Drawn Boy, or “Baby You’re a Rich Man” Beatles. Produced pop-rock, but with energy. Good stuff.

Best tracks: 2, 3, 6, 9.

1. Long drum intro. Up tempo poppy song with starts and stops. Gets all piano-y and airy after a bit. Fades directly into next song.
*2. Fun bassline, some multi-tracked vocals. Xylophone, horns come in.
*3. Slower, with a neat bridge. Tinkly sounds, violin.
4. Vibraphone? Craziness. Strings and piano - mid tempo.
5. Accordion and glockenspiel...see what I mean about the instrumentation?
*6. Bouncy and faster, with a slow interlude. Some fiddly synth.
7. A Brian Eno cover. Mostly synth and guitar - almost sounds brit-poppy.
8. Slower and mellow.
*9. Faster. Cool hand claps and such. A bit of Flaming Lips style silliness.
10. Up tempo guitar song. The production gets a little much.
11. Softer, slower. I’m hearing echoes of the Lips “The Soft Bulletin” again.
