Ruins is the third album from Brooklyn band The City and Horses, on Paper Garden Records. The 12 tracks are tight indie pop, with broad arrangements and abundant hooks. With a sound similar to Belle and Sebastian and Broken Social Scene, the band delivers an album of diverse scope, strong musicianship and sterling production. While thoroughly enjoyable, polished and professional, there is a decided lack of anything that could be described as excitement or edge. Stream and buy Ruins at the link below.
