Baltimore, Maryland can do no wrong in my ears and though needless to say Victoria Legrand is the figurative big momma of the city’s burgeoning dream-pop escapades, please do spare a thought for Mothersday. An all-male ensemble of three, the snowballing crescendoes with which the woozy bundle of anthemia that is Shoulder Soldier peaks form their first artistic endeavour to tumble on over from the East Coast: kept in line by martial snares and regimented further by bristly yodels, it’s one that’ll stick with us right through Mothering Sunday. And for those of you out there with a 2013 diary already handy, that’ll be March 10th.
