Album Review: Wild Palms - Until Spring (One Little Indian)
Resonating a bleak winter's day with the false promise of sunshine on the horizon.More on Wild Palms
There any similarities end though, as [b]‘Until Spring’[/b] blots out any potentially dissonant forces with a glittering opacity that smothers their minimal [a]New Order[/a]-cum-[a]Tears For Fears[/a] simpers.
Only on [b]‘Caretaker’[/b] and [b]‘Not Wing Clippers’[/b] does their third eye briefly blink; for much of the rest of this debut, the outlook’s grey.
