Close Talker – “Flux”

Not the most original album/band. There are a lot of obvious comparisons to other bands (Local Natives, Rural Alberta Advantage, U2, Coldplay), and there is a nice foundation for what may be great albums in the future. Unfortunately, they’re not quite there yet. Having said all that, the bands they sound like are all great bands, and there are a handful of really good songs on this record. If you like Local Natives, you will like this a lot. Similar vocals, good harmonies, punctuating guitars, polyrythmic percussion, crisp production, the whole kit-n-kaboodle (sic).
