The Windowsill - S/T LP

This is a record that I had wanted to grab for a while, but never could find it domestically. I just couldn't bring myself to pay the overseas shipping and get murdered on the exchange rate. There are records I will go that for in a heartbeat, but I just wasn't willing to commit to The Windowsill. Well, one finally became available in the US, and I'm glad it did.

The Windowsill play some nice straightforward pop. It tends to run mid tempo, with a real emphasis on hooks and harmonies. It actually reminds me a lot of the Hospital Job LP from late last year, but I think it's missing a little bit of the driving rhythm section that made the Hospital Job LP such a stand out.

I thoroughly enjoy this album and would definitely recommend grabbing the LP.  Though, I will still say, I'm not sure it's the kind of album worth importing.  As I write this review, you can still get it from a US distro at and it's definitely worth grabbing for $10.
