View Detail

So, three years on from "And Then Nothing" ...and yes, they've done it again! Their eleventh album (in seventeen years) is another amazing record. Soft, hazy, langud and melodic, except for a couple of nifty, upbeat 60s pop songs; it's an album that will surprise as much as it will grow. There is, as ever, a lot to take in, but I'd say it's more playful than it's predecessor with easy-listening (and Hawaiian guitars!) and jazzy shades mixing in with their usual Velvets-style simple-chorded prettiness. It's fitting they should close with a perfect cover of Big Star's "Take Care". Who needs happiness when sadness, longing and reflection feel this good?!
