Bless The Painter
ENGINEERS Always Returning (Kscope)
I bought and loved 2009s Three Fact Fader, but sort of lost track with the band after that. This new album has prompted me to get re-acquainted with them, but to be honest its not the same band that I remember. Theyve mostly dropped the shoegaze element of their work, which I thought gave their dream-pop songs their bite, and even after four or five listens none of the songs have stuck in my mind.
