Album of the week

Sept '20

Doves - The Universal Want

This album shown like a diamond in the rough for me this week. Overtones of Coldplay, jammy guitar rock with guitar solos reminiscent of traditional jambands like Phish and The Grateful Dead but smoothed and contoured to fit (in a good way), and a fair dose of modern strangeness in the form of samples and drops.

Though I don't know all the words yet, I suspect that it would make a great album to listen to on a long drive, to sing along with at times. And to just put some distance between you and what's got you down.
