We Are Mil­lion­aires BROAD­CAST RECORD­ING 8/10 For­mer Cre­ation stal­warts are happy to be sad the qui­etly an­themic ti­tle track of the fol­low up to 2014’s Bro­ken Heart Surgery mur­murs dis­sent against “rom-com happy end­ings”, but in fact for­mer Adorable front­man Pete Fi­jalkowski and ex-House of Love gui­tarist terry Bick­ers are per­fectly cast as the star­crossed leads in their own melan­choly B-movie, rue­fully de­con­struct­ing their mis­fit cre­ative part­ner­ship on the sump­tu­ous “Let’s Get Lost to­gether”. th­ese un­fail­ingly lovely late-night re­flec­tions stalk the same ter­rain as the third VU al­bum, richard Haw­ley, the Li­lac time and bal­lad-mode JAMC, mov­ing from the stark intimacy of “over you” to the nar­cotic drag of “Wak­ing Up” and Bond theme grandeur of “If the World Is All We Have”.
