The School: Wasting Away
Buy! - (Elefant)
The third album from this 8-piece Welsh band led by Liz Hunt is a sweet set of ‘60s-steeped pop reminiscent of Camera Obscura and Belle & Sebastian. The album’s lush pop sound combines guitars, keyboards, strings, horns and a variety of percussion with breathy, plaintive vocals, lovelorn lyrics and wistful melodies on sturdily crafted songs ranging from swinging Motown-indebted tunes to atmospheric ‘60s girl-group ballads. 8/21/2015 - Don Yates
