Album: Guillemots, Walk the River (Polydor)
Strange days for Guillemots, with frontman Fyfe Dangerfield now a top-10 pop star in his own right (albeit via a Billy Joel cover and John Lewis ad), but the band's third album ought to see their collective profile edge ahead.
WTR is a classy bit of radio-friendly Mercury-bait which highlights Dangerfield's development as a songwriter. Its impassioned folk-pop is relentlessly nice but "I Don't Feel Amazing Now" is simply a brilliant break-up / make-up plea.
