Trashcan Sinatras – Weightlifting

Long-awaited fourth album from Scottish crooners

Trending Now

Mellifluous, lovelorn Glaswegian AOR is now evidently such a part of Caledonian cultural heritage that the Trashcan Sinatras received help from the Scottish Arts Council to release this fourth album, eight years after the collapse of Go! Discs left the band bankrupt.

For all their travails, you might expect bitterness or even anger but, galloping opener “Welcome Back” aside, the record is happy to cruise along a Crowded House highway of mellow. But it’s frequently lush and lovely: “All The Dark Horses” and “It’s A Miracle” chime with the keen, earnest romanticism of prime Aztec Camera.
