School, The Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything
Elefant CD ER1166 8428846211664 14 May 12
Brand new album from Cardiff's THE SCHOOL "Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything" is a marvellous collection of utterly perfect pop songs. Produced by Dave Wrench (BRITISH SEA POWER, Euros Childs, BAT FOR LASHES, Beth Orton & others), the songs move from the dreaminess of "What's Just Begun" to tracks with little snips of bitterness like "It's Not The Same" & the melancholic goodbye that melts into the fade-out of "Baby Won't You Stay With Me Tonight", finishing with the uplifting "You Make Me Hear Music".
