MANCH­ESTER ORCHES­TRA

A BLACK MILE TO THE SUR­FACE

Total Guitar - - MONITOR -

For the fol­low-up to 2014’s gui­tar-heavy

Cope, the At­lanta alt-rock­ers have turned off the dis­tor­tion ped­als and drawn upon their re­cent ex­pe­ri­ence in film sound­track­ing to re­think their en­tire ap­proach to the use of six-strings in the band. The re­sults are deeply lay­ered and cin­e­matic in scope, but there’s still plenty of dex­trous pick­ing from Andy Hull and Robert McDow­ell, most no­tably on The Gold’s slick scalic riff and show-stop­ping bal­lad The Parts. Son­i­cally, this is a big de­par­ture, but still rooted firmly in Manch­ester Orches­tra’s earnest song­writ­ing tra­di­tion. Michael Ast­ley-Brown Down­load The Gro­cery
