Empire! Empire! do one song here, but I am pretty certain that anyone who likes Empire! Empire! will say "THIS IS NOT ENOUGH!". For one song of their delightful twinkly indiemo is not going to satiate. Just fling on the LP from last year again. That'll do you for an hour. Because 4 minutes of pretty guitars and Keith's man wails is but a fleeting taste of wintery sweetness. A snow flurry rather than 3 foot deep and a day off school. As ever, if you go weak at the knees for this thing, you can't fail to be delighted. It leaves you wondering how the band can evolve this sound, but I am pretty certain that whilst everyone who ever wanted indiemo to fuck off and die at the tail end of the 90s would sooner have their pinky finger dismembered than listen to anything as lily livered as this ever again, the few hundred folk that do appreciate it would more than welcome another full album's worth.
