Summer Make Good

Album Reviews
This is a critical time for Mm, a time for their brand of Icelandic minimalism and little girl vocals to branch out to a new level. 'Summer Make Good' promises much; noticeably darker in tone than its predecessor, the thunderstorm opening to 'H Hviss - A Ship' introduces an ambient slant to a sea shanty. 'Nightly Cares' is comforting and heart-warming and 'Sing Me Out The Window' benefits from a guitar refrain that gradually gathers in inisistence. Sadly, elsewhere, an inescapable sense of wooliness is the general feeling presented as half-formed songs carried off by muffled vocals. Regular collaborator Mice Parade is on hand again but he can't carry the brilliance and tunefulness of his 'Obrigado Saudade' release to this somewhat pretentious record. And as 'Abandoned Ship Bells' brings a close to this disappointing album, there's a sense that Mm have missed the boat on this occasion.
