Album Review: Bearsuit - The Phantom Forest (Fortuna Pop!)
Sprinkling their twee-pop with an injection of electro sounds
This fourth album and a line-up rejig finds them still in yelpingly good form, rigid electronics marginalising their previously abounding violins and flutes. Fatigue lies behind the jutting urgency, though; only [b]‘Giant Archaeopteryx’[/b] really sounds up for the fight, and tracks like [b]‘A Train Wreck’[/b] occasionally wander away from it completely.
