Album Review
mr. esq.
Reviewed 2010-12-23 
as reviewed by mr. esq.

60's pop revival/neo-folky indie pop
from oxford. most of this was recorded on 8track!
various locations&hundreds of instruments.
really sweet&simple&really damn good. =lovely.
riyl; aerial pink's haunted graffiti, pogues, billy bragg, teenage fanclub, belle&sebastion, housemartins, et al.
FCC WARNING: #2 ('SHIT'.)
SUGGESTIONS: ANYTRACK=GOODTRACK.
BUT ESP: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11.

*1. shimmery cymbals open. vox like nico. but it's a guy. a very authenntic 60's pop song, ala peter, paul&mary, dusty springfield. upbeat. lovely.
*2. FCC WARNING: 'SHIT.' billy braggy/pogues, but poppier.
3. pogues&belle.
*4. BEST TRACK:moving&sweet. there's violins. it's epic!(weepy)
*5. belle&sebastion. it's wistful. it's a beaut.
6. it's fiddle&banjo time! chorus vox. the whole village is in on this!
7. belle (&peter, paul&mary!): nicely syncopated pop. weird noises near end.
*8. ALMOST BEST TRACK: this is the rocker! it moves. like 70's brit-punk ala undertones, only ones. synths (!)
9. starts w/ underbed of fast drumming, very subtle, gits&vox ala radiohead. repetitive&building.
*10. lullaby start. vox like from the emptiest space. sweet.
*11. tolling bell...drums ala supremes. vox=est belle. horns.
a really sweet way to end this.
