The gist Pete Astor goes back to basics on this homely solo effort The music After hanging around in the left field for several years, making numerous experimental noises which seemed a million miles away from his seminal work with The Loft and The Weather Prophets (early, under-valued members of the fledgling Creation Records stable), Pete Astor seems to have found a second wind for crafting nice and simple songs. This is an album that's as warm as it is witty, the music is understated and entrenched in a 1970s haze of classic hooks and melodies.

The gist Album #2 from this noisy, poppy, punky bunch from Atlanta, Georgia The music In all honesty, when I first listened to this album I disliked it. I disliked its simplicity, its straightforwardness, its positivity and its willingness to look to the past. But after a bit of perseverance I saw the light. I saw that these traits, coupled with Jeremy Underwood's undoubted knack of writing feel good pop tunes, were the very things that make Dalliance a must own record.
