Spreading Rumours

Spreading Rumours by Grouplove
Released: Sep 2013
Label: Canvasback/ATL
Never mind their contemporary, synthesized sheen, Grouplove is a revival through and through, from the arpeggios on their second album's opening "I'm With You" recalling U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name" to Christian Zucconi's mutant falsetto. But the bizarre detuned riff in "Borderlines and Aliens" (and surprisingly effective "ari-ari-arigato" hook) is like no one else. Tons of lesser bands will flash through the listener's cortex during a Spreading Rumors play: Toadies, Spacehog and Third Eye Blind all have that twisted-glam touch.
