The Pearlfishers - Sky Meadows mp3 album
Product: The Pearlfishers – Sky Meadows. Scottish bands either tend towards sleazoid drone-rock or elegant songcraft. The Pearlfishers are more Brill Building than CBGB’s?as with ’80s forebears Danny Wilson and Hue & Cry, the spectres of Bacharach and Goffin/King (though not Phil Spector) loom large over these sophisticated vignettes, enhanced as they are by flugelhorns, cellos and violas. Even a post-Brill writer like Todd Rundgren is eulogised here on Todd Is God, all piano curlicues, I Saw The Light guitar and an arrangement worthy of a US TV sitcom theme.

For Sky Meadows, he's joined by a small orchestra of collaborators. It's much the same setup he employed on 2001's Across the Milky Way, and to a similar result, coating each track in a thick lather of baroque instrumentation. The overall effect, though, is less a channeling of Scott Walker and The Beach Boys than some bizarre midpoint between John Sebastian's "Welcome Back, Kotter" theme and Mike Post's "Hill Street Blues" soundtracks, a too-polite concoction of inflated orch-pop perhaps best referred to as doormat-rock. I could swear I heard "Todd is God" on my last trip to the dentist. Still, a case could be made that The Pearlfishers are just occupying the niche left vacant by Prefab Sprout in the early 90s, and that such inoffensive indie pop still has its place in the world- a case I'm not inclined to argue against
