If you are the kind of person who likes your chocolate as rich and dark as it comes, and your red wine full and tannic, Calla have your disc ready. This New York trio mix driving guitar with lush soundscapes to create a wonderful fourth album - their first for the legendary Beggars Banquet label. With the catchiness of the Dandy Warhols at their best, the intensity of Joy Division and some Doves-like instrumentation, Calla don't break any conventions, but they do what they do awfully well. The songs are almost recumbent but maintain a remarkable suspense and dynamism. At times, the steady pace pushes this disc towards a more late night slot, but within that slot, it does a great job. Excellent slow burner.
