That's The Spirit – Orienteering

Ben Wilson could have been in too many bands, by giving so much away on each new incarnation he risked watering down the talent he was born to exploit. Thankfully his latest and greatest guise as That’s The Spirit sees him finally straddling a most perfect Yo La Tengo/Apples in Stereo/Sparklehorse swell of imagination. ‘Staying Places’ is the product of his endeavours in his own basement studio. And even if the sun didn’t make it down that far by the sounds of ‘Orienteering’ there may have been plenty of warm rays going in the opposite direction. It’s clever, hook laden and blessed with delightfully flitting brass and Wilson’s genuinely warm voice. A near perfect piece of indie pop then. KD
