Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the British Indie Pop band. Allo Darlin' creates perfect, sophisticated Pop gems and knows how to put on a effervescent, fun-filled live show. Achingly personal, incredibly poignant and familiar all at once, Elizabeth Morris' songwriting has deepened and developed since their debut. There's a sense that Europe reflects the changes in the world since their debut in 2009. with riots and protests across the globe and a deepening feeling of gloom, a carefree album didn't seem appropriate. Gloriously catchy, brilliantly uplifting and charmingly intelligent, Europe promises to be one of the most exciting albums of the year, with Allo Darlin' pleasing their existing loyal fanbase as well as winning over hordes of new admirers.

Only once every year or so do I discover an album that blows me away. (In case you're wondering, the last ones were Joanna Newsom's "Have One On Me" and Jens Lekman's "You're So Silent Jens.") Allo Darlin's "Europe" is the sound of my 2012.

Europe is more mature than Allo Darlin''s debut. (It felt wrong to use just one apostrophe there.) In particular, the lyrics sound much more heartfelt. Whereas the debut had its beautiful, emotional moments, Europe is drenched in them--almost painfully so. Never before has so much wistfulness, homesickness, longing and vulnerability been crammed into one recording. It's a big, gorgeously crafted love letter.

If you like Belle & Sebastian, Hefner, Camera Obscura, The Smiths and Jens Lekman, this album's a surefire bet. It sits right in the middle of the B&S/H/CO/TS/JL pentagram, like a little pining sacrifical lamb.

And--of course--if you dislike those bands, you'll almost certainly dislike this.

I'm absolutely in love with this album. It's melodious, full of emotion, bright jangling guitars and the vocals are gorgeous. Perfect album to give to your boyfriend (or girlfriend), to listen to on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or to cheer you up when you're feeling down. I had it constantly on repeat in 2012.

It helps to know a bit about the band's backstory to appreciate how wonderful these songs are. Elizabeth Morris--the band's lead singer, songwriter, ukelele player, and all-around awesomeness--moved to England from Australia, leaving behind her friends and family to chase an indie pop dream. After releasing her first album with Allo Darlin', their amazing self-titled album, they toured europe where they suffered one calamity after another: a van that kept breaking down, shows that went unpromoted, unreliable soundboard, and so on. That tour inspired this album, which traces themes of finding beauty despite trying circumstances, missing one's friends, wondering about the meaning of one's romantic relationships, but mostly an unabashed love of indie pop.

Take a listen to Tallulah and you should know whether this might be for you. It's just Elizabeth and her uke, and some of the most amazing, heartfelt lyrics you can imagine. To paraphrase John Peel, I can't plan to talk afterwards, because I get all dewy-eyed every time I hear it. Remember when music used to seem like a bit of magic? That's what this album means to me.

Sophisticated indie-pop (read Belle and Sebastian) on this here second album. Think of buzzwords like "achingly personal" and "sheer, heartfelt emotion" and occasional lush string arrangements under simply (but well) constructed twee-guitar-pop. To be honest, there's not really a bad song on this album, but there's also not any song that really stands above the rest or really draws you into the album. Still, pretty good.
