The Joy of the Return (Modern Sky)

Manchester’s The Slow Readers Club are back, back, BACK, with a fourth album of shimmering indie-rock in which they tackle everything from right-wing populism to algorithm driven propaganda (as well as old staples such as love and alienation). It’s great, and helped by a newfound love of poppy hooks and choruses that really take flight.
