Larsen B, Musketeer Album Review


Naming your band after a collapsed Ice Shelf that was then subsequently remembered in a British Sea Power song might seem contrived enough. This album, the follow up their previous 2 EP's, delivered over the past 3 years, is a very English record that on first glance could be a humorous Brit remake of the Nicholson classic, The Postman Always Rings Twice. This time, however, the setting is somewhere more akin to Greendale and the subtitle to it reads, 'Musketeer, The Postman always sings twice!'
