Paul Smith & Peter Brews - *Frozen By Sight*

I've been listening to this Frozen By Sight album between meetings all morning and it's not bad:

Paul Smith is the singer for Maximo Park, a band that has never really done much for me. This album is quite different from that band's stuff, sounding a lot like late-era XTC. There are few tracks that could easily fit into Apple Venus, Volume 1 without anyone being the wiser.

It's nothing groundbreaking and I don't know that I will return to it after the first listen, but one could do a lot worse for well-crafted chamber pop.
