It shouldn't be as good as it is....,
This review is from: Natural History (Audio CD)
I saw the Kloot supporting Mercury Rev, and although I had heard the name, I hadn't heard any of their music. I was sufficiently impressed to seek out this album.
It is a superb brew. Think Teenage Fanclub, if their main influence had been Leonard Cohen instead of The Byrds. The melodies are almost too immediate, almost too catchy, and the lyrics are full of double meaning and the hint of something terrible hiding under the kitchen sink.
There is nothing world changing about this record. It's just another acoustic folk pop album. But it happens to be a very, very good one.
