This review is from: Nice And Nicely Done (Audio CD)
This has been pretty much my staple listen for the past two months and I'm yet to get sick of it. It would be hard for me to talk about this album and not mention the similarities in sound to Pavement, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and The Wannadies, so I will mention it. Not so off-kliter as Pavement, the vocals are very similar to those of Alec Ounsworth and the songs have the touching summer-breezed sentiment that The Wannadies are very good at. I really rate a band who are able compose really strong melodies without being too obvious.
I suppose the sound fits in somewhere between catchy pop and indie (tho "indie" is fast becoming the vaguest genre!) It's really hard to get the songs out of your noggin, once they are firmly set, but as I say this only makes me want to listen to the album all the more. This is definately one band I'll be making the effort to watch at Reading.
My favourite tracks are "Late" and "Trust vs Mis-Trust"
Nice and Nicely Done, is indeed, just that and I have no quarms about giving it a grand old 5/5!
