Product Description

Product Description

The third album from Edinburgh's Meursault brings forth a more rounded, forceful sound, driven on by the addition of a bass player and drummer to the lineup, twinned with the mournful, lush orchestration of the ballads. Having morphed from a harsh electronic folk sound on their debut album, 2008's Pissing on Bonfires, Kissing With Tongues, to a style they described as 'epic lo-fi' on follow up All Creatures Will Make Merry, the ever-elusive Meursault have evolved once again. The addition of bass and drums, as well as the heavier use of strings and piano gives this album a more orchestral feel, whether that be on the thumping singles Flittin' and Dull Spark, or the gorgeous re-working of Lament For a Teenage Millionaire, which first appeared on their debut album

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 24 July 2012
By Adam
Format:MP3 Download
Great set of well written and thoughtful tunes with clever and sad lyrics. The band have changed their sound a little and the glitches and fuzz from previous albums has become violin sighs and the brush of a piano in an album that really sits together well and ranges from slow and beautiful to enthralling and eye-blinkingly distorted. A more rustic and less lolloping Elbow, a less obtuse and more soulful Radiohead, The National if they were from a rainy Scottish village. I'm putting these comparisons in to prick attention where it needs to be as this really is a record deserving of your time, but Meursault sound most like themselves nowadays. Enjoy. Then get the back catalogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars go buy 3 Feb 2013

I dont think i would feel compelled to write a review if my take on a particular cd was to be negative , additionally i'm perhaps not the best at cranking up the superlatives , i already have Meursalts first album which i enjoy ,alas perhaps being of a certain vintage i now prefer my music with extra "ache" , hear we have it in spades !!
I was fortunate to see these guys at the Aberfeldy festival and although i went to see many fav acts K C , Aiden Moffat , Withered Hand , it was Meursalt that really placed the proverbial cherry on my weekend cake , i feel compelled to swear at this point for additional emphasis alas i'm sure i'll piss off mr amazon (woops!!), in short they were amazing , this album is stunning and yet another reason to be proud of the wonderful music oozing from our little scottish heart , take a bow Mr PENNYCOOK AND TROOPS !!!

This is the first of Meursault's albums I have bought and they are great. It is such a lovely melodious group. I shall investigate their back catalogue.
