Favourite Songs – Love of an Orchestra by Noah and the Whale

Admittedly, the second album of the London-based Folkpop group is a lot less happy, perky and cheeky but as soon as you’ve settled with the new face of Noah and the Whale you will love the album because it’s a complex and beautifully arranged piece of work that is well crafted and best served from track one to track eleven without one skip.
And you will find the cheeky lyrics hidden in the slowly evolving pieces so don’t despair that there aren’t any “5 years time” or “two atoms in a molecule” anymore.
One of the highlights, nevertheless, is the uplifting “Love of an Orchestra” which might just as well be one of the best songs of 2009 and which is like a loud and cheery interlude.

By the way, there is a movie accompanying this album, so watch out for it.
