The seventh Lucksmiths studio album and follow-up to the excellent 'Naturaliste' is, dare we say it, the best Lucksmiths release yet! As always, there are lots of guitars, some soothing basslines, and a singing drummer who's far better than Phil Collins, but this time there's also a horn section having a party, some fiery organs, a string section who dig Phil Spector, and a lazy pedal steel. Featuring the “Hiccup” and “San Francisco” singles as well as live favourites “Sunlight in a Jar”, “The Music Next Door” and “Young and Dumb”, this album topped many end-of-year lists.
Math and Physics Club... I can't say enough about how fantastic this band really is... these folks have learned a great deal with time and line-up changes... A Listening Pleasure, Lived Here Before is Pure-Indie Pop at It's finest. Here We Find A beautiful Continuation and Refinement of all that Bliss From their Early Ep's and proper studio releases... Across Track Titles, Guitar interplay, and loads of nostalgia... Matthew Nangle
With Stranger in the Alps Phoebe gave us a typical singer songwriter style which was amazing. On punisher she has started to take in many influences from the music world around her. Making this album have such a unique style to it, that I am in love with. Drenochrome
