iTunes Editors’ Notes

How can you not love a band with the chutzpah to name what is essentially their debut after a singer in an obscure, early post-punk band (2008’s Alison Statton is named for the Young Marble Giants’ singer, Alison Statton)? Boston’s Andrew Churchman (vocals/guitar) and Sterling Bryant (bass) style their songs with a light hand and perhaps an affection for the spare art-pop of YMG, filtered through a more contemporary twee-pop sound. The warm, vintage-organ sounds of opener “More Purple” immediately calls to mind YMG, but the song soon takes on its own personality, with Churchman’s sweet ’n’ sour voice lifted by bright, jangly guitars and melodious horns. There’s a fullness to the trio’s sound, giving their brand of inarguably fey pop a hint of muscle (“Reject Reject,” “Tried to Be Good,” “Shoreham Kent”), but they also deliver willowy, winsome lamentation (“For Dee”) and loads of airy, twinkly pop to shuffle your feet to (“Alison Statton,” “Evan’s Way,” “The Royal We”). “A New City Life” spews enough punky angst from screeching guitars and hammered drums to steer the collection out of any sticky sugar-bog of which you may be leery.
