FT » Music » The Long Winters - "Putting the Days to Bed"

This superb Summer soundtrack is pristine power pop played perfectly. As I discovered last night, it is particularly ideal for listening to in the car after dropping your mother-in-law off at the airport. What really sets these guys apart from the rest is that their fantastic arrangements are matched by their deft lyrical touch. Whether it's a former groupie's cautionary tale to her daughter ("Honest") or what very well could be (but most certainly isn't) an ode to George Costanza's unborn daughter ("Seven"), this is their most complete work to date. When the time comes to put this year to bed, this album just might be on top of all the rest.
