We gave it a B+

Four Arms to Hold You, an enjoyable collaboration between Francis MacDonald of Glasgow’s BMX Bandits and New York power-pop tunesmith Michael Shelley, makes up in low-key charm what it lacks in formal slickness. Scruffily catchy tunes like “Monkey Man” and “Robert Lloyd” are casually performed but impeccably crafted, combining self-effacing wit and softhearted sensitivity. B+
