The Pastels – Slow Summits

the pastels slow summits

Their first in 16 years, ‘Slow Summits’ sees The Pastels reclaim their throne as kings and queens of intimate Scottish – if not British – guitar pop. Sometime-librarian Stephen Pastel returns with a handful of perfectly-formed songs regarding naivitie and nicities, backed by a combination of bashful guitar twee and 60s sophistipop. In short: fuck the latest Belle & Sebastian album.
