As befits a band with the name Scarboro Aquarium Club, the work of main songwriter Corey W. Schmidt is infused with a good deal of English nostalgia of the indie pop variety. Not surprisingly, 'The Queen Of The Beach' wears its Cherry Red/Él Records influence proudly on its sleeve and a tribute to Tracey Thorn needs no explanation. However, Schmidt forages further into the past as 'Blind Like The Sun' resonates with a ghostly air that is more the domain of Simon And Garfunkel. Oddly, though, it's an instrumental which works best of all as '(Magic Hour At The) Equinox' is evocative of a splendid daytrip to a seaside town. Schmidt's unfashionable choice of influences means that his outfit is only likely to attract a cult following but 'Black Swan Days' is an album that is hard not to like.
