Itís a slow starter this one, with almost flamenco styled gats starting things off, itís not until track 2 that the bandís hand begins to show.

It's an album of light pop number made for mass audience but still indie friendly; think Arcade Fire and Mercury Rev, Elbow.

Thereís something of a British sound to this, (the bands from Brooklyn), and an almost later year Beatlesk feel coming through. Like a subdued marching band, very vertical rhythms.

Itís quite a colourful listen, and once you get grounded with it its very charming

Warning Ė your dad might like it.
