This review is from: Swing Lo Magellan (Audio CD)
Went to see these guys at the Roundhouse last year and was blown away. This album has been on continuous loop in our house ever since. It manages to combine amazingly complex and unpredictable rhythms and harmonies with an easy-listening charm and killer melodic lines. My wife loves it too!
There's the spare arrangements of Vampire Weekend, the 'where's this going?' noodlings of Beck, the dry detached wit of David Byrne and the sonic experimentation of Bjork all ladled with backing vocals that sound like honey being poured over you by the Andrews Sisters.
Get it, you won't regret it!
