News and Notes
One of those 'tweener albums that came out in Europe last year and got some great advanced buzz. Now it's out domestically and some of the hype seems to have died down. Good thing? Not if it makes you think twice about picking up this amazing disc. Not only beautiful, but hard to categorize. Hooky, hammering guitars? Yes. Noisy, fascinating loops? Check. Lovely, languid vocals? Ja. In any case, whatever year it came out, it should be in your collection.
