Five years after offering their smoky treacle of a single ”What Goes Up,” this London-based trio has finally seen fit to release its first full-length album. Was it worth the wait? Well, it is for those who favor the kind of retro-futurist pop that recalls the mood-drenched fog of Galaxie 500 decorated with Byrdsian guitar filigrees. Add the reedy vocals of Alasdair MacLean to this shimmering sound tapestry and Idol-scorched listeners will find comfort in their hazy shade of summer.
