No Shouts No Calls
Double vinyl LP pressing. 2007 release, the fourth album from the British Indie Rock band. Originally released on Too Pure, it's widely considered the band's most accessible work to date and it delivers a set of urgent, romantic epics. Tracks like 'The Greater Times' and 'To the East' are direct yet complex, with soaring melodies, and the contrast between intimate, almost too-personal words and the swelling sounds around them is exquisite. · And while the album is dominated by the intense, impatient joy of 'At Sea', which rides glorious swells of keyboards and fuzzy guitars, it's lightly heartbroken moments are just as lovely: 'Saturday' boasts beautiful call-and-response vocals and lyrics that feel like a nursery rhyme about a breakup; 'Cut And Run' pairs a lighthearted melody and ukulele with the painful realization that a relationship is likely over.
