The M's

"The M's capture that glorious moment when the British Invasion bands of the '60s were still grappling with their love of R&B while flirting with the more sophisticated harmonies and hooks of classic pop songwriting. Melodies unfold with craftsmanlike attention to arrangement and harmonic development, but never at the expense of swagger. Sex lurks behind every androgynous turn, from falsetto harmonies that evoke T Rex's Marc Bolan in his glam glory to rhythms that shamble like back-alley lovers loaded on cheap wine."
