Yet another release from the Chicago post-rock scene, this time though the album fits quite snugly into the genre of easy listening. Sam Prekop's arch, airy vocals lend 'Oui' something of a carefree, summery feel. Despite only threatening on occasions to move into verse-chorus mode this long player is one which could entrap the casual listener as there are some delicious melodies hidden beneath the aloof image; you can almost imagine the group smiling as they made these songs. 'All The Photos' is propelled by dreamy guitar passages and there's a lovely, languid instrumental called, of course, 'You Beautiful Bastard'. Floataway tunes such as 'The Colony Room' and the genuinely heart-stopping 'Seemingly' are fine songs and 'Two Dolphins' possesses unavoidable space age/lounge comparisons with Stereolab. One could almost suggest this is deep easy listening.
