Album Review: Mister Heavenly - Out Of Love

Thursday 6th October, 2011 8:53AM

It would be too simple to say that Out of Love is a collection of back-to-basics good ole’ rock n roll songs. Anything that features the collective might of Nick Thorburn (he of Unicorns and Islands fame), Ryan Kattner (Man Man) and Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse and the Shins) has the potential either to fall flat or to capture some of the bands’ pop genius. It be hard not to have expectations given Thorburn in particular, has helped make some of the most underrated and best pop moments of the last decade. The band-members get to have a bit of fun on this release – the genre of the album has been coined “doom-wop”. It’s reasonably fitting, with the album’s heavyish guitars, pop melodies, and charming harmonies. And while the critical reception to the project hasn’t been particularly glowing thus far, one can only hope that this hasn’t written off what is an ultimately charming and thoroughly enjoyable album.
