Marty recommends ... "Fink" Hard Believer
Fink is built more around retaining a mood than definitive, finely tuned material. As such, many songs on ‘Hard Believer’ stretch out beyond the five-minute mark – although lengthier moments such as ‘Pilgrim’ and ‘Shakespeare’ could arguably do with a trim.
Ultimately, ‘Hard Believer’ is a warm, inviting record. While at times lacking in lyrical insight, Fink’s ability to maintain an atmosphere, to build up gentle, soothing bubbles of sound, is largely unmatched.
