Peggy Sue - 'Choir Of Echoes'

Album Info

  • Label: Wichita
8 / 10 Perhaps you had Peggy Sue marked as just another band of Mumford-ogling folksters, all charm and smiles but precious little in the way of spike or substance. If so, ‘Choir Of Echoes’ might just be the album that brings the light to you and the other last remaining nonbelievers. Peggy Sue’s fourth LP impresses throughout, a record of soulful depths and heady, emotional highs. From the haunting, melancholic gospel of ‘Come Back Around’ to the campfire simplicity of ‘How Heavy The Quiet That Grew Between Your Mouth And Mind,’ the band’s pace and drive never let up. The sultry doo-wop of ‘Longest Day Of The Year Blues’, meanwhile, may well be the catchiest tune you hear this winter.
