Crushing On: Sparrow and the Workshop

MurderopolisHiRes

I was lucky enough to get the new Sparrow and the Workshop album Murderopolis on preview a couple of months ago and since then it’s been on a pretty heavy rotation. What I know about the band is pretty limited, they’re from Glasgow and have been together for sometime and this is their third LP.

The eleven tracker swerves through the fragile – ‘Odessa’- catchy – ‘The Faster You Spin’ – and tempestuous – ‘Shock Shock’, making it  the kind of music you’d happily belt out in the car (that weird girl you see singing at traffic lights? Yeah – moi). Closer ‘Autumn in Winter’ is a sweet addition, crescendos showcasing Jill O Sullivan’s distinctive vocal.

My personal favourite ‘The Glue that Binds Us’, angst with resonance and the perfect break up song.
