ELECTRIC SOFT PARADE The American Adventure (2003 UK 9-track CD the second album from the Brighton psych-pop duo including the singles Things Ive Done and Lose Yr Frown lyric booklet picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

The Electric Soft Parade's second album The American Adventure--the follow-up to the Mercury Prize-nominated Holes in the Wall--is an in-depth study into the widescreen possibilities of indie rock. The Brighton brothers' noses for a pop hook remain undiminished, branding the woozy slide guitar swagger of "Things I've Done Before" and brooding rumble "Lights Out" as instant anthems. But for the most part, The American Adventure's hummable melodies are soft and bleary and buried in swathes of atmospheric bric-a-brac. The title track is a vast and desolate soundscape of eerie echoes, unnerving bleeps, deranged strings and circular vocals, punctuated by pockets of the dreamiest of tunes, while "Chaos" and "Existing" are feather-light lullabies floating on twinkling xylophones, harps and an unspoken menace. Even the likes of "Wrongest Thing in Town" and "Lose YR Frown", which start as sweet and simple country plodders, mutate into vast and crashing expanses of dogged drums, accordions and all manner of analogue organs and noises to mesmerise and disturb. An indie-pop sequel with big ambitions, The American Adventure strives for the magnificent and finds it at every turn. --Dan Gennoe
