Hells yeah. Shout Out Louds debut, Our Ill Wills, was one of my favorites of 2007 and now we are getting a follow-up in 2010. After hearing that Phil Ek was producing (the guy who turned the Dodos latest album into a bore), that there wouldn’t be any more strings or bells, and being initially disappointed with “Walls”, I was pretty skeptical about the whole affair. Then I listened. And listened. And watched. And listened. And now I am pretty damn into it. “Walls” is definitely a step in a different direction for the band, but at the same time it’s still a huge anthemic fist pumper that has their stamp all over it. February 23rd is when we get to hear Work and I emphasize hear because I think they could have stepped up their game with the album art. Our Ill Wills was so on point and now this makes them look like a bunch of sad-sacks instead of one of the most sincerely fun bands around.
