The Wave Pictures – “This Heart of Mine”


This one seems to have slipped out a bit quietly for Stateside folks. I came backwards to The Wave Pictures through faves The Surfing Magazines, but the pastoral charms of the band are just as entrancing. While past efforts have had a dark blues undercurent, the slow country crawl of “This Heart of Mine” is a welcome color on the band. The ramble-pick of strings and a lonesome howl of harmonica give the first taste of the upcoming When The Purple Emperor Spreads His Wings a wood-smoked melancholy that feels just right this time of year. With a cable knit sentiment this sets The Wave Pictures up for another stunner of an album. The record arrives May 20th from Moshi Moshi.
