Bless The Painter
ENGINEERS – Always Returning (Kscope)

I bought and loved 2009’s ‘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 it’s not the same band that I remember. They’ve 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.
