The Californian heroes released their 2nd double LP of the year a few weeks ago.
It’s called Return Of The Dream Canteen and it sounds as a collection of songs
that didn’t make their last 5 or so longplayers.
To make sure that everyone agrees on that, they lifted a new single
off the double LP. It’s named The Shape I’m Takin’ and it’s boring.
Juliette Jackson (voice/songwriter) about the album: “So much of the album I wrote
while I was pregnant and basically just wondering what the hell this was going to be like.
When I listen to it now, I can hear myself saying all these things and having all these anxieties. Those songs are a bit more floaty and just thinking about things and the songs I wrote after are more like the reality of extreme highs and extreme lows and the whole hormonal madness.”
NME: “Lead singer Juliette Jackson’s pregnancy – and the band’s “recommitment” to each other – make the songwriting on album three immensely personal… From their pen through to their sound, ‘Here Is Everything’ is emotive and glossy; one that gives space to breathe in this busy world… Their deepest, most emotional album yet.” Score: 4/5.
Key single/slcip: Wide Eyes
TUTV: Their 3rd, their absolute best.
A blissful pop achievement.
