The three-piece — which features Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger — achieves the musical equivalent of an ice-cold glass of water on a hot day with their latest release, All Hours.
The songs are reminiscent Give It Up - The Ivys (2) - Inside Out (CD) Air and Charlotte Gainsbourg — sultry and sophisticated, minimal yet still complex. It is electronica-tinged indie pop enjoyed best on rainy days, melancholy with a hint of the bittersweetness.
On their first album in five years, "Suspicious" stands out most, opening with a looped and synthesized glockenspiel that rides with handclaps and Dominique Durand's alluring voice into a toe-tapping hook.
Like the rest of All Hours — and, really, the rest of the band's oeuvre through the years — it is a completely non-threatening cut and so Give It Up - The Ivys (2) - Inside Out (CD) as to almost fade into the background, Give It Up - The Ivys (2) - Inside Out (CD).
Another stellar number is the peppy "You Make It So Hard," which calls to mind 's French pop with its acoustic guitar, Durand's warm vocals, quick tempo and perfect allotment of Moog. Both have simple lo-fi Give It Up - The Ivys (2) - Inside Out (CD), but where Pipas stays fresh and innovative, on this track, Ivy wearies the listener with replaceable, Muzak-style indie pop that comes off as competent yet bland.
This seems to be the band's greatest weakness. Despite boasting the talents of Schlesinger — one of the most consistently innovative musicians in mainstream pop — the music sometimes falls flat, Give It Up - The Ivys (2) - Inside Out (CD), and at times, After Hours hits a note so subdued as to be unforgettable. Sometimes it's because the music is so adroitly chilled-out, and othertimes, it's just plain dull.
The band is precariously perched on a tightrope with All Hours.
