One of my Top Ten albums from 2016 was the Trashcan Sinatras’ Wild Pendulum. This Scottish indie pop guitar band has been around for a while - their debut was 1990’s Cake. This is their first album in seven years and it has all kinds of great tunes, from the foot tapping Ain’t That Something :
to the sweet crooning of Best Days On Earth :
Toss in the epic Autumn :
and you have an album that has everything I’m looking for - great tunes, of course, showing consistency and a connected style but with enough different sounds to keep it interesting from start to finish. I still need to check out some of their earlier stuff, especially the aforementioned Cake.
