Arab Strap: Philophobia
Buy! - (Matador)
Scottish duo's second album (and first to be released in the States) combines an unsettling minimalist sound with bitingly honest lyrics exposing the more sordid side of relationships. Tindersticks and Slint are musical touchstones, but Arab Strap's grubby realism puts them in a class of their own. 6/15/1998 - Don Yates
