Is it their finest work to date? “In The Tall Grass” is impossibly evocative, these impressions jotted down before I even knew the title – the song induced a kind of trance – crickets, the hissing of summer lawns, the delicious, ambiguous, almost imperceptible backing vocals, the memories of a hot summers day recalled on…

I hope this doesn’t Helsinki without a trace
