In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
genre:
Indie Rock

We gave it a B+

This Georgia quartet’s second album blends buzzing indie-rock guitars, beautifully arranged horns, and oddball instrumentation (what’s a zanzithophone?). But, hey, anyone can make off-the-wall sounds; it’s Milk-man Jeff Mangum’s bouncy pop melodies on songs like ”Ghost” that make In the Aeroplane Over the Sea take off. Too bad this almost-great album is weighed down by a couple of lifeless acoustic warblers. B+
