Album Review

Reviewed 2008-02-18
The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir.. isn't a gospel choir. They're 19
musicians from Chicago, doing straightforward Belle and Sebastian style vocals, mixed with the punky pop/folk/chamber pop of, say, Darren Hanlon.

_1_. Jaunty, catchy, male vocals, hand claps, full on pop/rock song.
_2_. Imagine a classic Matt Pond PA chamber pop song, but with some yelled vocals.
3. Lots of strumming and toms. bitter, noisy.
4. Female vocals, piano, very simple track.
5. Bright surf-esque guitar, male vocals
_6_. Male vocals, female backing.
7. Full band with horns. Hints of slide guitar are masked by piano.
8. Female vocals, guitar, accordion
9. Female vocals with male harmonies. Song really ends around
4:10/-0:48 and then descends into this weird noise, lots of breathing, random vocal samples, and synth.

RIYL: Belle and Sebastian, Darren Hanlon,The Smiths
FCCs: All clean
Three out of five stars: not terribly creative within the chamber pop space, but well executed.
