Revelino ‘Broadcaster’ (Dirt Records)
Revelino’s ‘Broadcaster’, their second album, is typically stuffed with guitar pout and circular harmonies which, given the obvious confines of time and space and budget is to their credit. So too their laid-back grasp of pop’s key dynamics, most tellingly on both ‘Rollercoaster’ and ‘Stay Down’, which rattle and hum for sure but which never actually lose the plot.
