Albumrecensie

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. Opening track "Many Thanks for Your Honest Opinion," with its scratchily energetic guitar parts and snarky lyrics, clearly owes a bit to the David Gedge songbook, and the winsome bubblegum melody and lovelorn lyrics of "The Story's Over" are tailor-made for a cover by Amelia Fletcher's next band. But the young trio perform their brand of earnest semi-twee indie pop with such scrappy enthusiasm and emotional directness that accusations of near-plagiarism simply don't wash.

Strong echoes of the Wedding Present, the Smiths, Talulah Gosh and their offshoots, and seemingly dozens of others are inescapable in Ben Siddall's urgent up-and-down guitar riffs and his somewhat adenoidal boy-next-door vocals, which themselves sound directly inspired by the Television...
