Another wonderful release from the Slumberland Records roster: The breezy charm and sheer exuberance of Europe, the second album by Allo Darlin’, would be hard to resist for any indie-pop fans. Elizabeth Moss and her band mates have this effortless ability to toss off these spry pop songs filled with everyday reflections on love, friendship and whatnot that are easy for anyone to relate to. The burnished glow of “Some People Say” deftly captures the emotional tussle of being unsure about the start of something; a bittersweet serenade for two stick figures conflicted and hanging on to a desperate conviction that loneliness is art. – Keith.
Europe is out on Slumberland Records.
