Pale Young Gentlemen – Single Days

Oh, if only this had come out in the last week I could pronounce with unrestrained glee that the Pale Young Gentlemen’s eponymous debut is the first great LP of the new year (03/07 in fact). The reason being that PYG is a truly arresting listen, full of quirky cross-genre tunes that hit their intended targets with the consistency of a champion darts player. The Wisconsin quintet even see fit to include a cello player in their entourage which gives their tunes a slinkiness not normally associated with musical indie folk. You’ll hear it on the positively appetising ‘Single Days’ where it’s joined by a skidadaling piano line, chirpy chords and Mike Reisenauer’s morning after tones. If that doesn’t shiver your timbers then you’d better set sail for the mainstream and a glut of inconsequential sonic adventures. KD

    I hope they go far. This band is one of the most unique sounds I have heard to date and they are nothing short of expceptional.
