Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great album and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's definitely not for everyone, lo-fi indie elctronic music appears to be an acquired taste, but once you're into it, it's hard to look back.

The sound, for the uninitiated, is very simple, with a cheap-sounding keyboard used for both the beat and the melody, with the lead vocals completing the fairly sparse sound. It doesn't really sound like there's much going on there, but I think that the tools used in creating the music belie the mastery with which it's composed and, above all, It's refreshingly different; I've never really heard anything similar.

The beauty of the music, however, is in the delicate and rather wonderful lyrics. Most songs tell some kind of story, often about loneliness or heartache, but without ever getting depressing or overly angst-ridden. I struggle not to smile at some of the poetry conjured: "A listless intellectual in her prime, Scrabble high score 409, with nothing remarkable to leave behind".

Toby Take a Bow is a personal favourite, with a nice little riff on The Smiths in the lyrics ("Heaven knows you're miserable now, so Toby take a bow") and a wonderful downtrodden beauty throughout. This stands alongside the catchy and upbeat (or at least upbeat as far as CFTPA gets) Jeanne, If You're Ever in Portland as the stand outs on the album.

When your only complaint is that your favourite tracks are too short so you have to repeat them a few times to get your fill, you can tell you're onto a winner.
