Tracklist: Pocketbooks - Promises, Promises

When they're not helping out with Indietracks, Pocketbooks are making the sort of sun-dappled field-worthy swinging indiepop with melancholia that Stuart Murdoch left behind somewhere around 1997. This first taste of September's second album Carousel pushes them onto the next level of melodic quintessence, Emma Hall sounding not too far from Kirsty Maccoll at her sunniest, delicious strings setting off the bittersweet undertow, soundtracking the sepia-tinged memories you didn't know you could still conjure up. Download for free off Bandcamp.
