Recensione album

Leeds trio the Lodger sound unapologetically influenced by several generations of their indie countrymen: flashes of Orange Juice, the Wedding Present, Heavenly, and others permeate their debut album Grown Ups. But they're more than just C-86-addicted anoraks attempting to replicate the cooler parts of their record collections.
