"A little over a year after the release of their debut album Silverware, Alex Paulick and Rob Taylor are dressing up in their Sunday best to present Finery, a collection characterized by harmonious shape and classic lines. Once again the pair have clearly been attending to detail, as befits their bespoke approach to songwriting. Paulick's cuts (and clicks) are perfectly measured, and piano, vibraphone and violin (hand-played, of course) provide natural warmth. Taylor's voice is sometimes buttoned up; sometimes he gets just a little hot under the collar... As you are probably realizing, there is a common thread running through Finery. From a melodic yearning to put away the winter garb and put on the clothes that summer wears, along a procession of thought (in seven verses!) from a megalomaniac tailor, and on to a stream of consciousness journey wrapped in a coat made out of senses. 'Illegible Love' features Christoph Clöser, Of Bohren & The Club Of Gore."
