Drowned in Sound

Sure, all music is lovesick but these ten tracks are laced with more schadenfreude than Aidan Moffat’s divorce proceedings.


It ultimately presents as bleak a view of life as any of Green’s albums, while also being extremely sweet about it.

The 405

Despite a couple of less exciting moments, the album really is a beautiful little treat that should be listened to if you're feeling particularly reflective or just want something pleasant that doesn't require too much concentration.


As a homage to all the good things about ’60s easy listening this ticks all the boxes even if it feels too much like a re-hash of times gone by.


Green and Shapiro come off as two kindred spirits with similar relationship experiences, like two people just meeting whose old stories miraculously become new again.
