Young & Old
(ATP Recordings)
Out 13.02.12

8/10 stars
The Denver combo’s second long- player is an endorphin rush of smart, soulful pop. Recorded with The Black Key’s Patrick Carney in Nashville, ‘Young & Old’ builds on last year’s ‘Cape Dory’ adding a full band vibe to their previous bedroom recordings. The songwriting is top notch. ‘Dreaming’ is exquisite, Aliana Moore’s breathless vocal plays kiss-chase with a succulent melody and a swirling beat. ‘My Better Self’ tried to be maudlin, but only succeeds to out itself as a masterpiece of synth-pop, while ‘It All Feels The Same’ is shameless ear candy. Warning: listening to this album may cause a serious outbreak of happiness.”
