"Less naive and more esoterically filled with chagrin."
It's been a long time coming — six or so years, in fact — but No One Deserves You is yet another chip off the wistful pop block.
Less naive and more esoterically filled with chagrin, the ten songs here still brim with understated maturity and ebullient romanticism. Love Won't Save You and Somewhere Good play with maudlin New Wave, while She's My Hero is as lively as ever, a sunworn shuffle barely holding in the excitement. As their faintly disingenuous album title states, Crayon Fields are working hard at playing nice, and reaping the rewards.
