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.
