I've been a little under the weather today, just realized I hadn't posted anything yet...anyway, kind of liking Europe, the second full-length from Allo Darlin, another one of these brash-yet-vulnerable, fresh-voiced, female-fronted, c86 redolent outings in the same general class as Hospitality and Standard Fare. Allo Darlin's main threat is one Elizabeth Morris, an Aussie by birth and Londoner by inclination, who sits on the fence between vulnerability and breezy assurance. "Capricornia" is the first single
... but I find myself favoring ukulele-thrummed "Tallulah," in which Morris muses, "I'm wondering if...I've already heard...all the songs that'll mean something."
Yes, hmm, good question.
Europe is out April 17 on Slumberland.
