Glaciers - Living Right

More jangly goodness from Australia.  There seem to be several bands called Glaciers, making these guys a bit harder to identify and pigeonhole.  What is definitely the case is they released this album in 2016.  It opens with the quite glorious jangle of Winter, accompanied by soft vocals, which sets the tone for the album.  It's kind of driving around on a (dreaded) sunny day music, exemplified by Local Hero, Weekdays and everything else here.  Career Crisis is vaguely reminiscent of the brighter moments of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions, and how can you not love a band who calls a song Ddouble Vvision!  Later in the album Sensible and the title track feature some gorgeous, liquid guitar lines.

If there is a criticism, it's that there is practically no variation across the album, but on the other hand, each of the 11 tracks here are seriously strong.
