Dion Born To Be With You PHIL SPECTOR IN­TER­NA­TIONAL, 1975 The US singer’s 1975 mas­ter­piece has long been a touch­stone for dreamy rock bands look­ing to repli­cate its loose, live feel. It in­flu­enced Alex Turner and co’s fluid record­ing ap­proach when they got to La Frette stu­dios. ★★★★★ The Beach Boys Pet Sounds CAPI­TOL, 1966 Brian Wil­son’s ’ 60s clas­sic in­spired his band to largely aban­don their gui­tar sound on the record in favour of widescreen in­stru­men­ta­tion, most ev­i­dent on the Western-style sway of The World’s First Ever Mon­ster Truck Front Flip. ★★★★★ Tame Im­pala Loner­ism MODULAR, 2012 The mel­lower mo­ments on the sec­ond al­bum from Kevin Parker’s neopsych col­lec­tive bring to mind the lithe basslines of the ti­tle track and Amer­i­can Sports. Plus, there’s also a guest spot from the Aussie group’s bassist Cam Avery. ★★★★
