Best of 2010 #6. No band does what the Corespondents do. Being ominous while being playful, employing kitsch while not being kitschy, being so accesible while still being experimental. Their first full length since the addition of Kieran Harrison-Buehlinger and their evolution from ambient band to party band, Ur is an incredibly solid album and serves as an amazing soundtrack to a great variety of situations. I don't usually have much care for fanciful guitar work, but with the Corespondents there is no wanking, no unnecessary notes, and this impresses me. Combine this with interesting rhythms and a variety of string instruments that blend well with guitars while not being guitars and I'm sold. In my opinion, it's hard not to be.
