Anyone who was lucky enough to catch The Pigeon Detectives on their recent European wanderings is totally familiar with the song ‘Lost’ as a new live favourite. This so called review is just to inform you that those two months spent recording in New York were well spent. For one, you do not work with Justin Gerrish every day of the week or month or err, two.
He has worked with some good bands from the likes of River via Weezer through to Vampire Weekend to us that is three bands but musically he has covered folk, soul, indie, rock, and blues that does take a little bit of multitasking. Guess that is my main point is The Pigeon Detectives have captured most of the energy of their live performance of ‘Lost’ while the band along with producer Justin, seem to have eeked out more depth and they don’t lose a beat. Great releases, very good band, in short, things are looking up. 8/10
