I'll tell you why I took a risk on this album:
The LP is on colored vinyl & comes with a free download of the full album. So far I've only had a couple of listens, but I agree that it is downright charming. The harmonies and melodies are lovely, and the instrumentation is just as interesting as any High Llamas record. The lyrics are sung in French.
- It looked intriguing at the record store when I thought the band's name was SOY, which is a great name for a band.
- One of the band members is Sean O'Hagan, who is one of big brains behind the High Llamas (a group that I like a lot).
- The sticker on the sleeve describes the music as "Indie-fied bossa nova...downright charming" and "Delicate wispy melodies vie with choral refrains...smooth as silk, cool as a cucumber and light as a feather".
- I heard the track "Robin" online and liked it.
