Ravens & Chimes – Division Street

For some reason I’ve always bracketed Ravens & Chimes with Vampire Weekend, more to do with them appearing at the same time rather the fact that they both come from New York. While the latter have always left me cold the former’s lack of activity since their wonderful debut of a few years back meant they had slipped from view. Thankfully that’s about to change with the imminent arrival of a bouncing new LP titled ‘Holiday Life’. Opening track ‘Division Street’ has been given the onerous task of whetting appetites and it pulls it off with sweet proficiency. The Asher Lack troupe appear in fine melodic form, never overstating a message that is best served on a bed of tenderness. Great to see them return, maybe 2010 can redeem itself yet. KD
