My Raining Stars
From St Saviour to Quickwell (self-release)
This French act celebrates the timeless pop of each decade, from the Zombies to the Shins. On this easy-going outing, characterized by boyish lead, girl back-up voices and ringing distortioned guitar, the apples of MRS don't fall far from the tree. Some are still attached to the tree. While it's pure joy to hear the spirit of C86 indie pop, MRS perhaps plays it too safe, staying close to home with what it feels completely comfortable. -Kenyon
