Product Type: VINYL LP

Here we have the third album from Michael Knight, a German (by way of Ireland) band that does not actually contain a person with the name Michael Knight. And this is also the best album from said band, which is saying something as their previous records were already pretty great. The core of the band is just two fellows, but they receive a lot of help from friends, making for a nice overall orchestral sound, with strings, horns and backing vocals galore. One band they really remind me of is Walker Kong, but I suppose a more recognizable name would be Explorers Club or a clean Hidden Cameras. But they also harken back to the simpler time of bands like the Left Banke, the Zombies and the Millennium, with bits of whimsy scattered across the album's 13 tracks, which makes for a very pleasant and easy listen.
