Although it lifts off with a flawless indie-pop opener and sounds somehow lively even at its most melancholy, the lovely new Weakerthans album disc is all about the art of settling in and telling a good, unhurried story. We like it in the background at work, on the headphones during our commute–drifting in and out, or giving it our utmost attention.
Good band makes their best album.
